Street lighting

Policy and strategy

Our principles and standards for the street lighting are set out in our policy below. This policy is to be used by developers where street lighting is required for new highway and property developments.

Our central management system allows us to dim the brightness of street lighting across the borough. Where street lighting equipment allows, lighting levels will be dimmed as follows.

Area Times Dimming
Strategic road network junctions All operating hours 30% dimmed
Local road network Dusk to midnight 30% dimmed
Midnight to 5am 50% dimmed
5am to daylight 30% dimmed
Controlled crossings and subways All operating hours Unaffected

Our street lighting central management system strategy is set out in document below.
