A decision was made by North Yorkshire County Council to dim the street lights through Bullamoor park, and turn some off completey in other areas of Northallerton at midnight. All in an effort to save money. Leaving the large area which is used by many people as a throughway, in almost complete darkness.
On Sunday the 19th of October at 9:15pm 2014. A woman was pulled to the ground and her bag taken. She was left with a black eye and very shaken from the ordeal.
In the early hours of Tuesday the 17th of February 2015. A man in his 20s was sexually assaulted by 2 men. (Investigation ongoing).
And although not in Bullamoor Park, in August 2014 a young girl was raped by two young men Beside the club Amadeus. In a very poorly lit alleyway used by people when leaving the club.
These incidents highlight the urgent need for increased street lighting in certain areas of Northallerton, an increase and more suitable positioning of CCTV and a more prominent police presence in the town.
We, the undersigned, call on the North Yorkshire County Council and the North Yorkshire Police to address the issue of street lighting, CCTV, and Police presence at Bullamoor Park, Northallerton, North Yorkshire.
