LED streetlights arrive in Cheltenham


With work underway in Cheltenham to renew street lighting, residents are being invited to local events where they can find out more.

Gloucestershire County Council is replacing around 55,000 streetlights with LED technology across the county over the next three years.

More than 6000 streetlights have already been upgraded since the rollout began in November 2015.

During May and June replacement work will continue in residential areas across Gloucester, and will begin in parts of Cheltenham.

To help residents learn more about LED streetlights, and their benefits, the county council is holding a series of community events where residents can ask questions and find out more about the scheme.

The events will take place from 3pm to 6pm each day in the following locations:

Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways said, "Its fantastic news that our work to replace Gloucestershire's ageing street lights with cutting edge LED technology has arrived in Cheltenham. 

"If you've heard about LED street lights but you're not sure why they're so good, come along to one of our events this month.

"We'll be able to tell you about our work in Cheltenham this summer and our experts will be on hand to answer your questions."

Each household will receive a letter before work begins in their area.
