Street lighting Wellsway

We have had a few questions about the new lighting. This is the council officers reply.

"All new schemes are designed to BS5489 this in turn references a European standard which gives a range of lighting categories. This is then divided in to two main groups' traffic routes and residential streets each are dealt with differently obviously the traffic routes receive higher levels of light.

Each locality is looked at on its merits and the traffic count data, accident data and crime statistics considered to inform the selection and level of light provided. "

The new lights are more energy efficient and cause less light pollution. If you have any issues please contact us.
