The first phase of the comprehensive programme of column replacements is now complete. Old concrete columns are being replaced with new LED's which will give a brighter, cleaner light and require less maintenance. 

Phase two is now on order and will be completed in 2018. There has been an unavoidable delay due to the number of columns the contractor is replacing this year.   

We apologise for any inconvenience while the works are in progress, please bear with us. Please report any problems to the Council Manager.

This scheme involves turning off some street lights between Midnight and 5.00 a.m. Columns at road junctions, where there is traffic calming or an overriding need will be unaffected. If a light near you is off and you are not sure whether it is damaged or part of this scheme please contact NYCC for clarification 

Please note that street lights in the ownership of Barlby and Osgodby Town Council are unaffected by this switch off.

NYCC are also replacing (over the next 2 - 3 years) all of its standard street lighting with LED technology which will be more energy efficient and reduce current maintenance costs.  


* The last column on Recreation Road (by the underpass) and all of the other lights between this light and the rear of Ousebank are the responsibility of the successors of BOCM Pauls
