Programme of Works

Every year we produce a Programme of Works for Street Lighting.

New Housing Developments

Before work can start on the construction of a new road, the developer must obtain Roads Construction Consent.

The developer is responsible for the provision and maintenance of street lighting on roads and footways that are to be adopted by us.

Once street lighting is operational within a new development, the developer is responsible for its maintenance until we formally adopt the road.

We can offer a design service for road lights on a rechargeable basis, further details on this can be obtained by contacting us
