Layla Moran and Conor McKenzie’s recent survey received many responses from Jericho residents. 72% said they would support a campaign to light the canal path between Rewley Road and Walton Well Road.
Responding, local resident and campaigner Conor McKenzie said:
“While there are some very practical reasons for lighting on the path, notably for those travelling to the train station in the mornings and evenings, there were a few very strong arguments against such a campaign, including in relation to wildlife.
"I will look into this matter more, keeping in touch with all residents and finding out how we can address these concerns.”
