Policy

BACKGROUND AND LEGAL FRAMEWORK

The Council as Highway Authority may provide lighting for the purposes of any Highway or proposed Highway for which they are or will be the Highway Authority under section 97 and 98 of the Highways Act 1980.

The provision of street lighting services within Bath and North East Somerset Councils area is complex.

The above un-written policies will be developed in the coming months to ensure the current verbal policy is documented and these will be placed before the Councils Executive for formal approval at the appropriate time.
