Streetlighting -Switch off is coming!


Changes to streetlighting

Cornwall Council is introducing a midnight to 5am switch off for many streetlights across Cornwall, to save carbon and costs.

 Those that are intended to be switched off have been carefully considered and Cornwall Council is now liaising with the police in the final check. 

The aim is to start in November by switching off streetlights between midnight and 5am in the first 10 parishes of Mylor, Perranarworthal, Ponsanooth, St Day, Gerrans, St Goran, St Just-in-Roseland, St Michael Caerhays, Tregony with Cuby, and Veryan. 

The roll out across the rest of Cornwall will continue over the following months.
