An example of up-lighting trees - an idea we have put forward as part of our lighting scheme for Leighton Buzzard's High Street.

An example of up-lighting trees - an idea we have put forward as part of our lighting scheme for Leighton Buzzard's High Street.

We are thrilled that the members of the Leighton Buzzard Cultural & Economic Services Committee have agreed in principle to endorse the Sutton Vane Associates' illumination plan for the High Street.

The idea of lighting the High Street comes at a time when it is "moving away from just bars and clubs and switching to fine dining and nice bars and cafes". The council and local business owners want the area to be a space "where people feel in a safe environment in a nice town centre," says Gennaro Borrelli, chairman of local independent traders’ group LB First.

We are looking forward to starting this project and being part of the revival of Leighton Buzzard's town centre.
