Council looks after more than 5,000 steetlights around the district.
Streetlight inspections are carried out at night on a monthly basis to check they're working properly and so any faulty lights can be fixed.
However, streetlights can fail in between inspections and we appreciate the public letting us know if they notice any lights not working.
If three or more lights in a row are out, it is a network fault and queries should go to Electra - phone 0800 LOSTPOWER (0800 567 876)
If individual streetlights are not working, please contact Council - phone 0800 486 486.
