Councillor Patricia Logue said “Over the past number of weeks I received a large number of complaints about street lights across a wide area of the Bogside, Brandywell and Bishop Street not working and the obvious problems this was causing for local residents.

I have also been working with Community Restorative Justice to try and help increase community safety in the area as we head into the winters months with dark mornings and nights.

We identified the following streets where many lights were currently not working – Limewood Street, Elmwood Road, Lonemoor Road ,Glenanne, Glendara, Iona Court, Moore Walk Anne Street, Brandywell Court ,Foyle Road, Orchard Row Ferguson Street.

I have been in contact with Transport NI and they have said that they will try and get most of the lights repaired over the course of the next few weeks.

If any resident in the area has a street lighting complaint and is not on the list please feel free to contact me and I will try and get it repaired.
