Powys County Council
As you can see I live in Forge where the side of the river I live on is in complete darkness due to the badly managed so called cost cutting exercise of Powys County Council.
I think that what you have done has placed our property and personal safety (with or without a torch) in danger from burglary, vandalism and thugs at night time. This action has left my Wife and I feeling less safe and secure in our own home.
You have a duty of care to us and I would like to ask if you have you done a risk assessment here ?
I understand that some consultation is taking place (Nobody consulted me!) regarding the possibility of putting some lights back on under a part time (12.30AM off) basis and I would be just a little bit happier with this solution and am looking to you for the putting the road light back on.
I have also spoken to my Councilor about this situation also.
By the way, I see you still have some Christmas Lights on in Machynlleth and I would be happy to have one lot of them here outside our property if all else fails

I am happy for you to reply either by Telephone, E Mail or Post whatever you wish.
