Street lights and illuminated signs
Not all street lights are owned and maintained by us. A small number are owned and maintained by town and parish councils, for historic reasons. In new developments, lighting remains the responsibility of the developer until transfer to us has taken place.
We inspect our street lights every year. Any found to be unsafe will be replaced with galvanised steel or aluminium columns with LED lights.
LED lights use significantly less electricity and have a lifespan of about 20 years, making them much cheaper to maintain. This reduces the amount of carbon emissions from the electricity production needed to operate them. They emit light in a specific direction so they can provide uniform illumination of an area, so reducing light spill and pollution.
