I’d like to have a driveway constructed for my house but there’s a street light in the way, can it be moved?

It is possible to have street lights moved within one or two metres without affecting the light on the road and pavement. However, there are factors which we need to check before we can go ahead. If it is possible to move a street light then the person (or company) who asked for it to be moved is expected to pay the full cost of moving it.


Maintenance workers came, but the light was not repaired.

We try to fix faults on the first visit. If the fault was not fixed then there may be a fault in the electricity supply or new parts are needed.


When will the faulty street light be fixed?

Faults are normally repaired within 5 working days after receiving the report. In an emergency we will try to be on site within 2 hours of receiving the report.

If the fault is with the electricity supply then these will take longer to fix.


How do i report a fault?

If you haven’t reported the fault to us please don’t assume that someone else has.

Details on how to report a fault can be found here
