At the time of these happenings a few weeks ago, even I didn't have an answer. But on enquiring with the Council, it soon transpired that there was of course a reason. As it happens, the Council had sent me a letter which crossed in the post and which explained that on evaluating the street lighting across the county, many needed to be removed for safety reasons and will be replaced as soon as is practically possible.

In the meantime, I have copied the letter that I received from the County Council's Highways Department and along with a covering letter from myself, have posted it through the 150 or so houses that live in the immediate vicinity of the 5 such lamp posts that have been cut in half in my ward during the past month. The letters aren't only for information but also note that the Council have requested that residents get in contact if they want to prioritise any of the lamps to receive the remedial works in the first instance.
