Street lighting

Street lighting is placed at strategic locations such as intersections, bus stops, and business precincts across the shire.

There needs to be significant nighttime pedestrian and cyclist activity, high nighttime traffic volumes, hazards to motorists and pedestrians, pedestrian crossings and speed humps for street lighting to be installed.

Council does not maintain street lighting - this is undertaken by Powercor.

New street and public place lighting installations will be consistent with the minimum requirements specified by Australian Standards. For more information you can access our Street and Public Place Lighting Policy
