Fault Repairs

We aim to repair all known street lighting faults within five working days.  However, efforts are made to group faults into geographical areas in order to maximize the efficiency of our repair crews.  This may result in us not being able to meet the five working days target on every fault.

Programme of Works

A programme of planned street lighting schemes is prepared each year as part of the Annual Works Programme, the schemes are identified to address a number of issues such as life expired columns, cabling issues and lighting level deficiencies.

New Housing Developments

A developer is responsible for providing street lighting on roads and footways that are to be adopted by us, and any required integration into the surrounding network. Once street lighting is operational within a new development, the developer is responsible for its maintenance until we formally adopt the road.
