Street lighting


The majority of street lighting in Norwich is maintained by Norfolk County Council. Norwich City Council is responsible for the lighting along some footpaths and alleys.

Report a street lighting problem

If you are able to identify the street light you are reporting by the reference number and colour of its post it will help us to deal with the problem.
