Part night street lighting

We're changing the way we light Derbyshire's streets at night.


The part night street lighting project has been running since 2012 and during this time we have surveyed and carried out risk assessments on over 26,000 street lights and consulted with 179 parish councils and over 115,000 residents to obtain local people's views on our plans.

We have converted 7,542 of our street lights, mostly in the smaller rural villages to part night operation (turned off between midnight and 5.30am) and as part of the project we have also permanently turned off 460 lights in rural or none residential areas. 

The project has helped us save almost 1,200,000 kW/h of electricity and 650 tonnes of carbon per year.   

On 21 October 2014 Cabinet approved a £23m invest to save proposal to change 68,000 of our street lights to LED in mainly residential areas representing approximately 78 per cent of the council's lighting stock. 

We have taken the decision to halt the part night street lighting project and focus on this new strategy which presents a unique opportunity for us to improve much of our street lighting asset. LED street lights will provide a further significant (33 per cent) reduction in our energy consumption and carbon emissions from street lights without having to turn any more lights off in urban areas where more concerns were raised during our consultations. 

Any lights which have been changed to operate on a part night basis will continue to operate in this way if the lantern is changed to an LED lantern as part of this new project.
