AN LED replacement programme is set to help the council reduce energy consumption by 60%.

This month Cumbria County Council will continue a county-wide LED replacement programme across Copeland and Allerdale as part of a £5.3m three year county-wide street lighting replacement and improvement scheme.

The first year of the project saw LED replacement work completed in Barrow and South Lakeland, and this will now be delivered in Copeland and Allerdale throughout July, August, September and October.
