Street lights in Brownhills are to be replaced by council chiefs in a bid to save cash, after residents praised previous work.
New LED street lights have already been introduced in Bloxwich and Leamore under a £250,000 scheme being rolled out by Walsall Council.
Now officials at the local authority are looking at expanding the ‘light to save’ initiative into Brownhills.
The approach is said to use less electricity and give out better light.
In a report to the authority, regeneration and transport chief Councillor Adrian Andrew said: “With regard to street lighting, we have implemented two ‘invest to save’ projects, in
Bloxwich and Leamore, where new LED lighting has reduced operating costs and carbon emissions.
“A business case for a third phase in Brownhills has been prepared and is currently being considered.”
The replacement of street lights has been carried out in two stages and seen hundreds, which date back more than 25 years, changed.
Council bosses have said with electricity prices continuing to soar they are more efficient and clearer than old lights.
More than 590 old-style sodium orange lights in Bloxwich were initially replaced with new LED lights before more were switched over in Leamore.
More than 160 streets have benefitted during the last 18 months.
These have included Aldeburgh Close, Alnwick Road, Astbury Close, Belfry Close, Enville Close and Glastonbury Crescent.
There were some previous complaints in parts of Webster Road and Goscote Place about them being too dim.
But in a survey carried out in 72 streets where LED lights had been put in, 54 per cent of residents thought they were better after the changeover, compared to 30 per cent who did not feel that way.
New street lights are also being rolled out in neighbouring Wolverhampton.
A £320,000 project is taking place around D’Eyncourt Road in Wednesfield, which will also see pavements and kerbs replaced in a big improvement project.
They have already been installed in the Sandringham Road, Buckingham Road, Whitehall Road, Ascot Drive, Belvedere Avenue, Westminster Avenue and Balmoral Road areas of Penn in the city.
