Christmas Lights

Angarrack Street Lights switched off between midnight and 5am

The Council is turning off some of its streetlights when most residents are asleep between the hours of midnight and 5am.  Streetlights in town centres where there is a strong night-time economy, areas where there is CCTV, and along main roads, will remain on or will be dimmed. 

Residents can see for themselves where and when streetlights will be turned off or dimmed between the hours of midnight and 5am with an interactive map on the Council website.    

The next phase of an initiative to reduce carbon emissions, cut light pollution to help nature recovery and encourage nocturnal wildlife, protect our designated Dark Skies areas, and save money on energy costs, is being rolled out. 
 

Some streetlights are switched off part of the night

Some of our street lights are switched off for part of the night, usually between the hours of midnight and 5am. This will reduce light pollution and help meet the Council's ambition to become Carbon Neutral by 2030.

Streetlights that are turned off part of the night are shown as pink dots on the interactive map below. Before reporting a light not working overnight, please check on the map below to see if its in an area where lights should be off part of the night. You can zoom in to an area that shows pink dots to check which lights in the area will be off part of the night.

Streetlights in Carbis Bay, St Columb Major, St Neot and Treverbyn Parish will be switched off or dimmed between midnight and 05:00 BST.
