Bring light to Cambridge and make our streets safer

This petition had 1,899 supporters


We have a real problem here in Cambridge.

Our parks in the city centre are not well-lit, putting peoples' safety at risk. Thankfully, the solution is an easy one. We urgently need better lighting in our parks and green spaces to ensure that when we walk through Cambridge at night, we feel safer and more secure. 

The Tab have decided to start this petition in the wake of a wave of sex attacks which took place in Cambridge this month (http://cambridge.tab.co.uk/2014/10/27/brutal-three-way-sex-attack-sparks-manhunt/ and http://cambridge.tab.co.uk/2014/10/26/breaking-sex-psychopath-hunts-and-attacks-three-women-in-a-single-night/).

The assaults happened on Cambridge's Christs Pieces and Jesus Green in the early hours of the morning. What can we do to prevent this from happening again? Lights are the first step.
