Street lighting – the main programme to upgrade street lights to more energy efficient LEDs is complete. Crews are, however, revisiting various locations to upgrade any less straightforward lights e.g. where access had been an issue on their initial visit. If you have a question about street lighting, please email

Environmental enforcement – a concerned member of the public spotted the driver of a concrete mixer truck washing its mixer out on the roadside and depositing the contents down a public drain. A lot of detailed information was shared with our enforcement team and they are currently investigating. If you spot anything that concerns you please report it to us.

Street Champions – our volunteer Street Champions are out and about doing their bit to keep neighbourhoods tidy. Details about becoming a Street Champion and other volunteering opportunities here.
