Street lighting

Information on what you can do if you are aware of a faulty street light.

Street lighting helps roads and footways to be used safely. We are responsible for maintaining over 27,000 street lights.

Please tell us about faults and problems to help us arrange for repairs to be carried out.

Despite regular inspections faults with our street lights still happen. If you discover a faulty street light, please report it to us.

To help us deal with the fault as quickly as possible please provide us with:

  • the street light number (printed on the street light column)
  • the road name
  • the location

Report a street lighting fault

If you are reporting something that is hazardous or an immediate danger please call us on 01254 585 585.

The fault may not get fixed if it is not considered a priority. The council is not responsible for lighting on private land.
