Faulty streetlight reporting and part-night lighting


Street Lighting have to fix their faults during the day when the street lights are off this means they cannot physically see which street light is faulty during the day. Please tell us as much detail as possible about:

  • the nature of the fault;
  • the column number – a black number on a white background, facing the road and located at about eye level;
  • the location of the fault – including town, road name and the house or property nearest to the light).
