Report a street light fault
We normally attend a faulty streetlight within 28 days. However, if the power supply is faulty, it is passed to Northern Power Grid, which will take longer to resolve.
Please allow 28 days for us to repair faults before contacting us regarding this matter.
Report dangerous issues, by phone on: 01422 288000, (evenings, weekends and Bank holidays ONLY).
LED Street lighting improvements
We are investing to improve the authority’s street lighting, by upgrading to light emitting diode (LED) technology.
LED street lighting emits a 'white light'. This is a more energy efficient way to light roads and pavements that are the responsibility of Calderdale Council.
Benefits of LED
The new LED street lighting will bring a number of benefits to residents, road users and the authority in Calderdale:
- it produces a 'white light' that improves visibility and colour recognition to help road users feel safer;
- it minimises light pollution into homes and gardens by directing light onto the road and pavement;
- it is more economical and produces less carbon than conventional street lighting. this helps to reduce the Council’s carbon footprint;
- it has a longer life-span (between 10 & 20 years) and a reduced likelihood of faults. This means less disruption on the network for further repair visits.
Information for residents
The two-year programme begins in April 2018 and involves the upgrade of the majority of the council’s 32,000 streetlights.
