Gloucestershire County Council has been undertaking a major project to upgrade street lighting, the main aim being to meet its carbon reduction target of 60% by 2020. Skanska UK PLC has been engaged to carry out these works. Work to upgrade the lighting within the area has been taking place during the last 24 months in residential areas and the Parish Council has been advised that they are now returning to the area to complete these conversions along with traffic route lighting. This remaining work will include wall brackets & wood pole-mounted units as well as some heritage lanterns.
These works are scheduled to take place in Wheatpieces Parish with effect from Monday 2nd July 2018 until Tuesday 31st July 2018.
