Posh Lights

Bulwell Resident

These are "posh" lights and are very effecient in the lighting effect. We are really pleased and they also look very contemporary. A friend visited us and the first thing he said was "I like your lights - well impressed - wish I had some on my street". Brilliant - keep up the good work. Well done to everyone involved.

Very Different

The lights are very different from the previous ones, however, now have got used to the difference, I find them very good.

Feels safer to walk around the streets

Nottingham Resident

The work was carried out while I was at work all day. The first time I noticed them was when I noticed it was very bright at night. I like the new lighting, it feels safer to walk around the streets.

“The current street lighting in Nottingham is becoming less effective. We work closely with the police and other emergency services through the Crime and Drugs Partnership to control crime and anti-social behaviour. These organisations could be greatly assisted in their work by better street lighting which makes it easier for them to monitor hot spots with CCTV. New street lighting will have huge environmental benefits too. Having the ability to be able to reduce the intensity of lighting during off-peak hours saves energy and money. So effective are the white lights that a slight dimming would probably be barely noticeable. We’ve been testing this approach on Valley Road in Sherwood since May 2009. At off-peak times we’ve reduced the lighting and no one has commented on it. While there is an increased cost to the council for the new lighting, this is money well spent. Rather than continuing to maintain old lights, it’s better to invest a bit more and have more effective and energy efficient lighting.”
