Dear North Ayrshire Council,

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, I would like to enquire the following information relating to Street Lighting.

I would like to request:

1: What date are the lighting columns along Fort Street, Largs, and the lighting columns along the Largs promenade due to be converted to LED ?

Dear North Ayrshire Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of North Ayrshire Council's handling of my FOI request.

All but ‘10 Lanterns’ along the Promenade at ‘Fort Street’ Largs have been converted to LED.
I fail to understand why North Ayrshire Council have converted all other Lanterns (same column type and size) and (right beside) lanterns which have not been converted.
The council seem to have ‘omitted’ the remainder of lanterns at Fort Street, Largs beginning with column number ST387 and failed to provide an explanation why.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/s...

Yours faithfully,

Lisa len
