Street Lighting

The City spends approximately $400 000 annually on street lighting. Street lighting is provided to the City by Western Power who supply, maintain and upgrade the lights. All street lights in the City were upgraded to 125w Mercury Vapour luminaires in December 1999 to satisfy the requirements of the Australian Standard for street lighting.

Damaged lights

All broken, damaged or street lights that remain on should be reported to Western Power. However, Western Power does not guarantee that all lights will be operational every evening. The Australian Standard for street lighting allows for up to 5% of lights being non operational at any time. Under an agreement with the City, Western Power will repair reported street light faults within 10 working days. Western Power has established a dedicated hotline for these reports which is 1800 622 008.

If you wish to log a faulty street light complaint, please visit the Western Power website. Western Power requires contact details and streetlight information which will assist in repairing the street lights so they are functioning accordingly. Every faulty light is a service we are paying for that is not being delivered. Your assistance in keeping our street lights fully functional is appreciated.

Please note that park lights, lights in laneways and private lights, located in St Peters Square and Waratah Ave, should be reported directly to the City.
