Part night street lighting

Part night street lighting is where some lamps are turned off between midnight and 5.30am.


After a period of consultation and risk assessment, we've now converted over 8,000 street lights, mostly in smaller rural villages, to part night lighting. We've also permanently turned off 460 lights in rural or non-residential areas.

We now save almost 1,200,000 kW/h of electricity and 650 tonnes of carbon per year.

Reporting crime or road safety concerns

You can report any road safety, crime or antisocial behaviour you feel is related to part night street lighting on our part night lighting report form (opens in a new window).

There will need to be evidence that part night lighting has contributed to an increase in crime or road safety concerns in the area.

We regularly review all reports that include a valid police incident number. If you don't have one we can't progress your report.

If you have concerns that crime rates may have increased in your area but you haven't been a victim of crime yourself, contact your local safer neighbourhood team (opens in a new window).

We can amend our plans for an area if the police consider that part night lighting has caused an unacceptable increase in crime or antisocial activity in the six month period after a change.
