Street lighting

Street lighting in North Northamptonshire is mainly maintained by Balfour Beatty with some by us and parish councils.

Generally, the council only lights a road or path its maintenance is a 'Highway Authority' responsibility and we have decided to light it. Some roads fall under our switch off policy and are shown on our interactive mapping.

Report a fault

Before reporting, note the unique reference number which can be found on each lighting column, but you can still report the issue simply by providing the location details.

You can check whether Balfour Beatty is responsible for a particular light, or if responsibility lies with one of our own teams or parish councils on our interactive mapping. Repairs that parish councils are responsible for need to be reported directly to them.

In certain areas, we deal with repairs directly or they are the responsibility of the local parish council.

After reporting

If the street light falls under Balfour Beatty's responsibility, they will visit the location to determine the problem. Not all faults can be rectified by Balfour Beatty as faults with the supply cables are the responsibility of the power company.

Repairs, where possible, will be undertaken within 5 working days. However, if the fault needs to be passed to the power company this may take significantly longer to rectify.

Our responsibility

If our own teams are responsible, we'll send them out as soon as possible to investigate and make repairs. If it's a supply cable problem, we'll need to get the power company involved, which can take longer.

Parish and private responsibility

We can't carry out repairs on street lamps that parish councils, developers or private owners are responsible for and we will advise if the issue needs to be reported to them.

National Highways responsibility

National Highways is responsible for lightning on certain trunk roads. The roads are highlighted in green on our mapping:

  • M1
  • M45
  • A5
  • A14
  • A43 between the M40 Junction 10 and M1 Junction 15a (from Northampton to the county boundary near Stamford is the Council)
  • A45 between Thrapston and the M1 Junction 15 (from Junction 16 to the county boundary towards Dunchurch is the Council)
