Dear Mr Armstrong,
 
Freedom of Information Act 2000 - Request for Information
 
I am writing in respect of your recent enquiry for information held by the
Authority under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act.
 
Please find the response to your request below.
 
1. Has the council installed any energy efficient street lighting in the
last five years, such as replacing halogen bulbs with LED street lights?
We have installed LED lanterns on new schemes but have not yet undertaken
a replacement programme.
 
2. If the council is in the process of installing any energy efficient
street lighting, please confirm when the council started to do this and
provide an estimate of when the council expects to have switched all
street lights to energy efficient street lighting. Our LED upgrade scheme
is scheduled to commence in April 2018 and last for 3 years.
 
3. How much did the council spend on running, installing and maintaining
street lighting under the council’s jurisdiction in 2015, 2016 and 2017?
 
The Council's financial year runs from April to March, and information is
not readily available in calendar years. To this end we are providing
(below) information in respect of the 2015/16 and 2016/17 financial years,
and trust that this is satisfactory for your purposes. Please note that
the full year costs for 2017/18 are not yet available.
 
The net costs to the Council of running, installing and maintaining street
lighting (including payments to the Council's PFI partner but excluding
the notional accounting adjustments required under public sector
accounting convention) are as follows
 
- 2015/16 £4,886,402
- 2016/17 £4,969,941
 
4. How much does the council estimate they will spend on running,
installing and maintaining street lighting under the council’s
jurisdiction in 2018?
 
The Council’s spend in 2018/19 is expected to be in the region of £5.07m.
 
5. How many complaints were received in relation to new energy efficient
street lighting, if any, during 2017? 3.
 
6. Please estimate how much money the council currently saves following
the installation of any energy efficient street lighting on a monthly and
annual basis? We are unable to answer this at the present time, as it is
not applicable until the LED project has commenced.
 
Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any further queries
regarding this matter.
 
Yours sincerely
