LETTER: Is there a point to street lamp plan?

WHY has West Sussex County Council spent a fortune replacing all our local street lamps?

This involved digging up pavements, installing new standards a few feet away from the old ones, removing the old and erecting the new, the total cost of which must be enormous.

If it was a question of fitting more efficient lights, why couldn’t only the lamp heads have been replaced?

Additionally, the old concrete standards required no maintenance, whereas the new metal ones will need painting from time to time.
