All night lighting

The 10-year LED replacement programme agreed by members in 2014 gave the council the opportunity to modify its strategy if necessary, allowing for ongoing evaluation of the latest technology.

As a result the council agreed to revise our Street Lighting Policy and return to all-night lighting at Environment and Community Services committee on 18 January 2017.

This decision was made because the cost of the technology, which allowed accurate switching of LED lights, has increased. It is now more cost effective to use photocells and leave the lights switched on throughout the night.

The revised policy will come into effect on 1 April 2017 and will be effective for all LED replacement schemes after this date.

Please note that previously installed LED lanterns will remain part-night and will only be considered for change after the current LED programme is completed in March 2024.
