Requests for Additional Christmas Lighting
The Council is happy to give advice to organisations that wish to fund additions to the existing Christmas Lighting displays. However, please remember to allow plenty of time for such requests - by Autumn, it is often too late to put the necessary infrastructure in place, or order new displays.
Information on the procedures that need to be followed regarding electrical supplies for new Christmas Lighting (including lights on Christmas Trees) can be found by clicking on the link to the right.
