Street Lighting FAQ's

Can you repair the street light outside my property?

Castle Point Borough Council is responsible for the repair and maintenance of street lighting on land it owns such as car parks, parks and open spaces. The maintenance of street lights is either the responsibility of Essex Highways (Essex County Council) where the road is an adopted highway, or in the case of private streets and private roads the owners of the properties fronting the road. Castle Point Borough Council is unable to give any further guidance to residents in respect of the maintenance of private streets and private roads (including street lighting). 

For street lights that are the responsibility of Essex Highways (Essex County Council), please contact them on 0845 603 7631 or use the following link http://www.essexhighways.org/transport-and-roads.aspx
