The second phase of the comprehensive programme of column replacements and upgrading is nearing completion, with new LED's which will give a brighter, cleaner light and require less maintenance.
Phase three of the rolling programme to change to LED's will commence in 2019.
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 reduce current maintenance costs.
There is a proposal to remove 208 columns on the Bypass between roundabouts, as an energy saving measure. For more information please contact North Yorkshire County Council.
