Last month, after the tragic murder of Bobbi-Anne McLeod, hundreds of women from across Plymouth shared their experiences of violence against women in our city. One issue that comes up time and time again is the poor lighting in many of our city’s parks. 

That’s why we are calling on Plymouth City Council to improve lighting in our city’s parks, starting with Central Park. If you want to walk your dog, go running, or cross the park to get home or to local destinations like the Life Centre you are faced with unlit or poorly lit paths.

There’s much more that needs to be done to keep women and girls safe in our city beyond park lighting, but this is a clear area where the council can make a difference NOW. The Council's new commission on the topic won't even report until March and given the strength of feeling across the city, women want to see greater urgency from our city's leaders.

Please share and sign and show our city’s leaders that we need action NOW - and leave your comments on where you would like to see better park lighting.
