There are a number of streetlight columns which have been damaged or are corroded and will need to be replaced. These are 3 in the High St in Chipstead, 2 in Witches Lane, 1 each in Bessels Way, Homedean Road, Chevening Road and Chesterfield Drive. The works will take place between 14th-19th April. I will be contacting affected residents directly but it is imperative that the road space around the columns is kept clear on the days the column replacement and power connections takes place. I will be putting out bollards but the reason it is so important is because UKPN will charge a £500 fee if they are unable to gain access to the column, and then a further £1000 to come back plus KCC will charge for the traffic management permits. UKPN apparently will not even wait while someone knocks on a door to ask for the car to be moved.
I'm sorry for the short term inconvenience and thank everyone in advance for your forbearance
