Street lighting – Norfolk County Council implementation of part night lighting

This change would enable lights to automatically switch off from approximately midnight to 5am (or 1am to 6am during British Summer Time) and would affect some, or all, of the lights in your area. This would take three years to roll out across Norfolk, and for many of you lights would continue to be lit throughout the night for some time.

Work will begin in the next few months to start fitting cells in some lights, and it will take three years to do this across the county. The change will not affect all lights and will only happen on suitable roads, so in many cases lights will continue to be lit all night. The areas where you are likely to see this change are residential roads where there is little or no through traffic and low crime. The change will not be happening in town centres, on
CCTV sites or on remote footpaths and alleys linking residential streets.

Three months before any work is due to be carried out in your area, we will write to you with details of the roads that will be affected. This is so that you are able to raise any specific local issues with us before any work on site.  We will also be writing to your district  council, Safer Neighbourhood Team and County Council Member, and will send letters to  individual households in affected areas at least four weeks before any work is due.
