Switching off lights saves £300k a year
A COUNTY-WIDE scheme which plunged some Sherborne streets into darkness during the night has helped Dorset County Council save £300,000 a year.
Street lamps in selected areas of the town have been switched off between 1am and 6.30am, or between midnight and 5.30am during the winter, since September last year.
Dorset county councillor for Sherborne, Robert Gould (pictured) says there have been "significant" savings.
