You can use the fault reporting website for reporting non-emergency lighting faults.
Before you report a fault, please check the faulty streetlight for its reference number. This is usually fixed to the column 1.5m to 2m (5 to 6 feet) above ground. If the street light also has a series of letters and numbers beneath the reference number, then please also use these when reporting the fault.
You will also need to note down the road or street name.
