I am glad to see that the lighting columns have now been installed, but I would guess not connected, at the pedestrian way at the back of Willesden Library. This was a major gripe among some of those who objected to the new development. You can see from the photo here, Alex Colas (who subsequently stood in the local elections as an "Independent" in alliance with the Greens,holding a sign referring to "Muggers Alley". It was also a point raised by some of those who supported the "Town Green" application. I would say that the area is actually quite broad, and looking at the spacing of the lighting columns, reasonably well lit. It will also benefit from the natural surveillance from both the Library Centre and the flats.
