The third phase of the comprehensive programme of column replacements and upgrading is now in hand. The new LED's give a brighter, cleaner light and require less maintenance.
The last phase of upgrading from the old sodium lights to LED's will commence at the end of 2020/beginning of 2021.
Please report any problems to the Council Manager.

NYCC STREET LIGHT ENERGY REDUCTION PROGRAMME (SLERP)
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 will reduce current maintenance costs.
