Coed Melyn Parklocated next to Allt-yr-Yn in the City of Newport, Wales is 0.71 kilometres in length. The path, which runs through the park, skirts Coed Melyn woods, St Woolos Cemetery and allotments, and also carries a section of the Sirhowy Valley Walk. Newport City Councilhas carried out work to upgrade the local area as part of its Active Travel strategy to encourage more people to get active.


he lighting upgrade for the pathway, required a solution that was fully dark skies compliant with zero upward light and IK10 vandal resistant. In addition, the solution had to ensure

no light trespass on surrounding properties and that trees remained unlit as the park is known to be frequented by bats and other wildlife, as well as, being energy efficient. Thorn’s Urba bollard in Warm White 3000K have fully achieved the brief of

zero upward light at low lighting level (P6) with a low mounting height (no columns). Urba was the only lighting solution submitted that was fully compliant with the council’s specification. 125 stylish, yet robust Urba bollards are installed along the path with a lighting distribution incorporating an optimised ULOR of 0 and asymmetric optic which reduces obtrusive light and glare. Urba has a contemporary design and is a vandal resistant solution which can be easily integrated into any urban environment. Urba also offers low energy consumption, long lifetime and reduced maintenance.

The public response has been really positive and the council has received

great feedback. The local community is very pleased with it and the path is now very popular with dog walkers, runners and cyclists. The specification and performance of the Urba Bollard has enhanced the

area and helped with well-being and improved safety while considering minimal impact on the local wildlife and the environment. Councillor Roger Jeavons, Newport City Council’s cabinet member for city

services, said: “The bollards have proved a great solution to our desire to balance the safety of those using this vital link with the natural environment, and particularly the wildlife inhabitants, in this special part of the city. LEDs are also an important tool in our ambition to become a carbon neutral city so this is a really positive step forward for Newport.”

When electrical contractor, Tony Hickman, from A J Hickman Electrical, had a query for a security project from the owner of a stud farm in Warwickshire, he contacted his local electrical wholesaler for some product recommendations. With a great working relationship long established between the wholesaler and local ESPsales manager, Scott Phillimore, Scott was soon brought onto the project to provide his expertise.

requirements and to put a proposal forward. With no existing security measures in place at the large premises and surrounding acres, the owner was concerned about being vulnerable to potential break ins and theſts and wanted the best CCTV system possible to protect her highly valuable assets, which, as well as horses, includes expensive tack and equipment. With such extensive grounds to cover –


large stables, storage areas, training grounds, as well as a couple of fields – Scott recommended the HDview 5MP IP POE CCTV system. The IP POE CCTV range is designed to offer superior, reliable and straightforward installation solutions and is particularly suitable for larger applications with its wide choice of NVRs and camera selection. The range features POE (Power-Over-Ethernet) which enables the camera

and power feed to be wired in Cat5e cable up to 100 metres without the need for additional power, which makes installation much more convenient.

site visit to the Stud Farm was required to provide Scott with details of the security

A single Ethernet cable provides both the power and the HD digital feed, with just one cable per camera and multiple cameras can be installed anywhere on the network that the NVR is connected to. The HDView IP POE 32 channel NVR was set up along with around 20 cameras to cover the extensive premises. A mixture of white bullet and dome cameras were selected including 3.6mm fixed lens and 2.8-12mm varifocal lens cameras and these were mounted on deep camera bases to provide a neat and tidy finish. Two of the 8- way POE switches were also used to extend

the run lengths past 100m and to make the wiring aspect easier. Processing power, an abundance of features, versatility and high

resolution IP CCTV all combine to make ESP’s HDView IP POE system the superior choice over traditional analogue systems, and it proved to be the ideal solution for the Stud Farm project.
