Rutland set for a power change

Street lighting could soon come under the control of parish councils

When it comes to street lighting, the power could soon be in the hands of Rutland's Parish Councils.

New plans have been put together by the County Council and if approved would see the costs of street lighting passed on to parishes.

There's also the suggestion of loans being made available to help with the cost of upgrading to energy saving lighting.
