Street Lighting

Street lighting is installed to assist pedestrians on our footpaths and Council’s standard is to have a street light approximately every 100m or on every second electricity pole.

Council officers conduct night time inspections of specific areas if a concern is raised.

Monash City Council has recently installed environmentally sustainable light globes into street lights in the region, please see the following for details on this new initiative: Sustainable Lighting.

Street light issues

We rely on residents to let us know if there is an issue with street lights and if you feel the area is too dark please contact Council on 9518 3555 or request a service online.

Council will investigate concerns from residents. Our response time is typically three weeks to ensure assessment conditions are appropriate, such as a full moon providing extra light not always afforded to the area. Possible remedies may include trimming nature strip trees back to ensure street lights are effective and visible or installing additional lighting if appropriate.

Street light globes are replaced by United Energy typically every four years or sooner if needed.

If a street light is present but does not work you can contact United Energy on 132 099 or Council (on 9518 3555 or request a service online ) and we can follow up on your behalf.
