As the impact of the energy crisis begins to bite, Councillors and other Officers are questioning those responsible for Local Authority street lighting regarding provision of this service. In some instances, lighting professionals are coming under pressure to make changes which cause them concern. Allan will summarise the relevant legislation regarding the provision of street lighting, discuss potential options open to those responsible for lighting, and advise on how to approach and address requests that the lighting professional feels will adversely affect safety.
Allan’s volunteer and industry roles include: Executive secretary CIE-UK National Illumination Committee of Great Britain, Secretary to the UK Lighting Liaison Group, International Commission for Illumination Division 4 Technical Committee member TC4-53 and TC4-58, ILP Technical Committee member and IET Committee Guidance on highway electrical street furniture.
Why attend? This session will give you clarity on the right to provide street lighting. You will learn how to ensure that the service is maintained, and how the authority may consider approaches to reduce their energy consumption in light of the energy crisis. You will gain an understanding of how to consider departing from standards through risk analysis. Find out how, as a professional, you should act if you feel that a strategy will adversely affect safety.
