Q : Leave ALL Street Lights ON
Comments : Reduce crime AND the fear of crime. Stop house and car insurance premiums from increasing (all Police and motoring organisation advise driving and parking in well lit areas). People are having to change their lifestyles because of pitch black streets at night. This is NOT acceptable. The so called savings from this unsupported measure are already being outweighed by increased Police costs to name but one. The money for the lights IS available if the councillors relinquish their acceptance of their 60% pay increase and stop funding vanity projects such as art galleries. Unacceptable. This is not democracy.

Leave ALL Street Lights ON
Comments : Longmead Estate, Epsom is a very dangerous and frightening area to be around at night. Let alone in pitch black. I come home between 4-5am. I have to park across the road and run to my flat and pray no one is waiting for me. As they can see me pull up but I can't see them. Cars vandalised and people attacked, with figures rising.
I look out the window and can see nothing in the street. Unnerving that they can see me at my window

Comments : With all the street lights recently having been upgraded to LED's which as an Electrician I know these to be very good at saving power and as the timers don't seem to be working properly resetting could save more.

Comments : walking home late at night is not comfortable for any woman but with the lights out it's much much worse. My 21 year old daughter often comes home after midnight at weekends and I'm truly worried for her safety.

Comments : Its not safe - police are stretched anyways so why make crime rise as it has since the lights turned off? Put them back on!

Leave ALL Street Lights ON
Comments : Increased crime rate from car break ins to burglaries in my road alone since the lights have gone off between midnight and 5am.
As females we now feel very vulnerable walking home from the station if the train gets in after midnight. I have lived in this area for 32 years and have never felt so vulnerable as I do now

Comments : The lights should remain on but dimmed - everyone has a right to feel safe. Where I live, the last train from London arrives in at 12.30, leaving many people vulnerable in trying to make their way home.

Save money in other areas, starting with Councillor Hodge's ridiculous salary and changing his plush office with luxurious lunches.

Comments : People should not be too afraid to go out or put at risk (accidental or malicious) to save money, especially when the saving is from a service residents actually pay for.

Comments : There are many reasons to make sure that we have street lights on during the night.  Safety and crime are two that spring to mind straight away.  The darkness encourages criminals into thinking that they will get away with whatever they're trying for.  From the safety point of view I feel it is dangerous for anyone who is out after midnight of which many young people are.  We also need to think about all our shift workers - whether they be heading off to work or returning.  It feels as though it is a lack of respect to them - work regular hours and there are lights but go into shifts and you don't get looked after!! 
Personally, I moved to my road and not the country for the reason of there being people and lights, it was a criteria for me. 
I have lived in Surrey all my life and feel that this is very disrespectful of Surrey to it's residents.

Comments : Its just not safe these days to have streets in total darkness . Drivers cant see properly . People fall over as they cant see. Criminals have a huge advantage as they cant be seen. People are scared - its just not right .

Comments : The safety and security of Surrey residents and visitors is more important than anything else.
It is not safe to walk home down the uneven footpaths with sex pests lurking in the local park coming off the last train which arrives past midnight!

Leave ALL Street Lights ON
Comments : Rather than walking home after midnight i must now get a cab as it is completely pitch black and feel uneasy walking in total darkness. Why should i now feel pressured to being home before midnight or having to spend out on cabs when i already pay council tax for services. I did not even no there were talks about turning off the lights and i would of definitely voted against if i had been given the chance.

Name : Frances standish
Leave ALL Street Lights ON
Comments : Its unsafe to catch the last train with no lights to keep you aware of who or whats around you as you walk home . Crime has increased Im hearing all the time of cars being broken into and houses robbed because no one can see whats happening in the street when its pitch black

Name : Kelly Lawrence
Leave ALL Street Lights ON
Comments : Surrey is dark anyway. When The street lights are on they are very dim. To turn these lights off  completely is a health and safety issue. I can't see ANYTHING at all when the lights go off. We aren't in London where the streets are lit up by shop displays etc. We pay one of the highest council tax bills in SCC and it is time this money is stopped being wasted by the top dogs of SCC so that  cuts which affect the public safety within in the area need to be made. Get with the times SCC!

Comments : I have had my car hit twice and it has been broken into as well.  I will also now not leave the house after lights out as I am too scared to do so

Comments : A better option: we are in 2017; there are options for very efficient street lighting with LED, sensors and AI driven controls based on natural lighting, self adjusting start/finish times . It doesnt have to be 20th century thinking! Look at many other EU cities...

This site has been set up with a view to providing Surrey Residents with as much information as possible regarding the increase of crime following Surrey CC's decision to turn off our street lights between midnight and 5am.
We also need your help to force Surrey CC reverse their decision.

We believe that Surrey CC has put savings before public safety and in doing so the are putting Surrey Residents at risk.
