Street Light Replacement in Hockley Heath

The Parish Council have been advised that Solihull Council’s Street Lighting replacement programme is currently targeting Dorridge and Hockley Heath. This means that the Council’s street lighting team and its contractor Balfour Beatty will be on location over the coming weeks replacing certain street lights with new energy-efficient LED lanterns.

This programme has been initiated following a review of the Council’s street lighting practices and policies in 2012 which highlighted a need to reduce the Council’s carbon footprint as well as introduce cost-saving measures.
