New Street Lamps

New Street Lamps

You may have already noticed some activity around the villages as Leicestershire County Council begin work on our project to replace or upgrade the 49 street lamps that the Parish Council is responsible for.

Some lamps are being replaced altogether, others are having a new light fitted to the existing pole.

These new LED lamps will be lower maintenance and use less energy than the old sodium lamps, so will reduce council costs. More »

When first installed, the lamps will be at 100% power and may seem very bright in comparison to the old, orange, sodium lamps. Once the rollout is complete, the power will be reduced to around 70%.

If you have any queries at all, please contact the clerk. » Less
