Due to complaints, Hartlepool Borough Council is looking to improve lighting at the marina quayside.
The lights along the stretch of the marina quay were installed in 1998 and since then have been damaged by weather/lack of maintenance and some have the top lantern missing. They plan to replace the lights with energy efficient LEDs.
The replacing and repairing of the lights is expected to cost £3,000 and will be funded by the street lighting revenue budget.
Assistant Director of neighbourhoods, Alastair Smith, said: “The lights are located close to the quayside on a popular walking route to and from facilities on the marina. When the lights are inoperable there is a potential safety risk to residents and visitors alike.”
