Issue details

LED Street Lighting Contract

The council is responsible for the maintenance of approximately 500 street lights across the district.  A project is included in the 2023/24 capital programme to replace or upgrade some of the existing street lighting with newer technology energy efficient LED fittings and where necessary new lighting columns. This will not only reduce energy consumption in line with the Council’s net Zero Strategy, the fittings also have a much longer design life so will reduce the frequency of future maintenance visits.
