Council strives to provide public spaces that are safe, secure and free from the fear of crime.
If an area is attracting crime or disorder, we conduct a safety audit to identify what environmental design modifications can improve safety, including improvements to lighting.
If you have a request or concern regarding lighting, see below to establish who you should contact.
Street lighting is provided to improve road user safety at night by lighting roads and footpaths. This is particularly important at higher risk locations, such as intersections, sharp bends, pedestrian crossings and road islands.
Council does not install street lights to provide security lighting for private properties.
