Street lights

Good lighting is important to keep people safe on our footpaths. We're upgrading our streetlights to LED's as the old ones wear out. So let us know about any broken lights.

Broken streetlights

Please report any issues with streetlights - like lights not working, flicking, left on during the day, obscured by trees - so we can come and fix it for you. Call us on (04) 237 5089 or fill out the form below. It would also be great if you could give us specific details about the location of the light (and if more than one light is out).

LED lighting

LED street lights are being installed to replace any broken lights. These provide a softer white light that can be directed where it is needed and are more energy efficient when compared to the older street lights. Switching to LED lights will provide the following benefits:

  • Better light that gives clearer colours and detail - leading to safer streets
  • Less light pollution as the light can be directed
  • Cleaner for our environment - recyclable and contain no toxic material
  • Energy saving - use a third of the energy compared to existing lights
  • Longer life - last four to six times longer
  • Reduce the city's power and maintenance bills
  • Quick to light up
  • Easily dimmed or brightened as appropriate to the location
