Faulty street lamps

We inspect street lights regularly, but sometimes defects can occur between inspections.

How to report a street lighting fault

If the problem is on a public street, road or highway, or in a public park, please use our online form to report the problem.

Report a street lighting fault

Please be prepared to tell us the street name or pinpoint your location on a map so we can get to the location quickly.

If the problem is on a council estate, or on the outside of a council block, contact our Cleaning team.

You can report a dangerous street light out of office hours by ringing our emergency number.

What happens next?

Once we receive your report, we will inspect the problem within two working days.

We will usually change the bulbs within three working days. However, if the problem is related to an underground cable fault, repairs will take longer.
