Street lighting

Report a street lighting problem

Before reporting, please note that street lights along certain roads will be switched off between midnight and 5.30am as part of the selective part-night street lighting scheme.

We do this to:

  • help reduce carbon emissions for street lighting by 4.7% per year
  • save around £1.3 million over 10 years

All street lights will continue to be lit until midnight and the majority of lights will remain operational throughout the night. Only those selected to be part-night switched will go out at midnight.

For further information, use the general highways reporting form.

To report a problem with a street light, please use the Report a lighting fault form External link.
