Street Lighting Engagement – current position

Added at 23:08 on 16 February 2024

​​​​​The pilot scheme for dimming streetlights has now begun with 63,000 streetlights being dimmed to 30 per cent intensity from 8pm across the County.  This will result in a financial saving of £380,000 and will see an approximate carbon saving of 261 tonnes.

The pilot is for 18 months, whereby the data will be under constant review, and if there be any areas of concern, consideration will be made to adjusting the lights back, should the evidence support this.   The final data will be evaluated at the end of the pilot and the next steps will be decided at LCC Cabinet.  Current lighting levels will be retained in some areas such as where there are traffic calming measures and town centres with officers working closely with the police and emergency services on any issues.
