RESIDENTS have until December 6 to comment on controversial plans to switch off thousands of street lights at night.

Derbyshire County Council has launched a public consultation on proposals to turn off about 40,000 street lights between midnight and 5.30 – and some permanently – in a bid to save cash and cut energy consumption.

Residents can comment online by logging on to or by completing a questionnaire available from libraries and district and borough council offices.
