    2. Dickson path lighting – Vivienne Lewis has raised the issue that lighting on the path from Dickson, through the Lyneham wetlands and to Lyneham Shops is extremely dark and therefore poses a risk to anyone walking at night including females. There is no lighting around the wetlands or on the paths. The path from Lyneham shops to the wetlands is extremely dark. Fox place has no lighting at the entrance to the cul-de-sac and so people trying to find the street in the dark often miss it.
