Street Lighting Contract

Meeting: 26/07/2011 - Cabinet (Item 100)

100 Street Lighting Contract

Report of the Corporate Director, Neighbourhood and Planning is circulated


Supporting documents:


Cllr Dick Tonge, Cabinet member for Highways and Transport presented a report which sought Cabinet approval to extend the street lighting contract with the existing contractor Balfour Beatty.


In response to a question on the use of LED in street lighting, Cllr Tonge replied that this could be included if monies were made available through spend to save.




(a)          The existing street lighting contract with Balfour Beatty Workplace be extended for one year until July 2012.


(b)          Consideration should be given to including the maintenance of the Council’s street lighting maintenance in any future Highways Works contract which would be likely to start in June 2013.


(c)          The highway lighting work is moved from Southern Electricity to Balfour Beatty Workplace to realise the £4,000 saving.


Reason for Decisions


There are potential long-term savings to be made by including the maintenance of the county’s street lighting in a future larger Highways Works Contract.  Extending the existing street lighting contract would represent less risk to the Council and should offer good value for money in the circumstances.
