Perth to dispel winter gloom with £5m lighting initiative
Perth & Kinross Council are moving onto the delivery phase for their City Of Light Action Plan after alighting on engineering services group IKM Consulting to deliver electrical infrastructure for the £5m project.

Key spaces, landmarks and buildings are set to be bathed in light for the six-year long initiative, beginning with Norrie-Miller park in March which will benefit from new lighting columns.

Launched in 2016 the scheme aims to provide a fillip to Perth’s night-time economy with a mix of functional and decorative lighting dovetailed with streetscape enhancements; particularly key gateways such as the Broxden Roundabout and Kinnoull Hill Tower.

In Perth city centre itself a new breed of decorative lighting columns, media & wayfinding displays and street furniture will be delivered, animating key nodes of travel.

A key plank of these efforts will be the creation of a new courtyard around St Paul’s Church which will double as an events and performance space.

Just copying Berwick upon Tweed, at that cost can’t they think of something original??
