Town Council grant lights up Churwell

01/11/2018

Morley Town Council have welcomed the installation of a new street light which lights up the pathway between Churwell New Village and Cottingley Train Station.  The light was installed following monies being provided by Morley Town Council from it’s Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) fund and was lit up in the second week of October.

Dennis Shepherd, a resident on Churwell New Village and a member of the Churwell Environmental Action team said “Several residents contacted me to see if anything could be done to install a street light.  I contacted my local Churwell Town Councillor, Lew Beever to ask for his help and the help of the Town Council.”

Councillor Robert Finnigan, Leader of Morley Town Council said “This is exactly the type of project the CIL fund is for.  It allows us to fund projects that make our communities safer by introducing lighting columns to locations that have previously been unlit.”

The street light was installed following concerns raised by local residents regarding travelling along the pathway at night.

Councillor Lew Beever, a Churwell Town Councillor said “I am grateful for the support we have received from Morley Town Council to get this lighting column installed.  It makes the area safer for all at night and contributes towards better community safety.”
