Part Night Street Lighting

Dorset County Council are nearing the completion of the policy change which introduced part night lighting.

The policy requires that A and B class traffic routes, roundabouts, town centres and roads with vertical speed humps remain lit all night, with all the remaining street lights being turned off from midnight until 5:30am GMT. This change will not amend any private roads or lighting systems, as only equipment on the public highway and owned by Dorset County Council will be affected. The map shows the extent of lights being switched off. All those lights within the black boundaries will be subjected to the part night lighting scheme.

Iheret is intended to commence changes on site in the next 3 months, taking approximately 1 month to complete.
