Thorrington Parish Council owned street lights

If the light with a problem is on our list above please contact the Parish Clerk or the RFO to report it, giving the details of the location of the light and the particular issue.

Due to the age of the lights and the rising cost of replacement parts the Parish Council decided to upgrade to more energy efficient LED lights.  The two year program was started in February 2021 and completed in January 2022, falling across two financial years but allowing the work to be completed within a 12 month period.  Going forward this should significantly reduce both light pollution and the cost of maintenance and electricity.
