How do I resite a Street Lighting Column

Resite a column

The re-siting of lighting columns whilst not impossible is often difficult . The spacing between adjacent lights is critical for the distribution of lights on the road surface and therefore moving one light a few metres creates light and dark areas on the road.

Difficulties are also often encountered by moving a light to solve one problem, but causing another. Each request is therefore investigated on an individual basis.

If it is possible to move a light and there is no advantage or benefit to the Council, then the individual requesting such a move would be expected to pay the full cost of moving the light.

If you wish to investigate this further please contact the Street Lighting Department by writing to:

Street Lighting, Bath and North East Somerset Council, Floor 2 South, Riverside, Temple Street, Keynsham, Bristol BS31 1LA
