Specification and adoption details for street lights in new developments

In March 2010, Surrey County Council entered into a new 25 year contract with Skanska. As part of this contract all county owned lighting has been replaced or upgraded between 2010-2015. The new lighting has been installed with a dimming and remote monitoring system allowing us to save energy and monitor the lighting. Because of this and to subsequently allow us to adopt new lighting, any new lighting installed by a developer will need to meet the requirement of the relevant specification necessary.

Please see below the link to the Developers Guidance notes (PDF) including the Technical Specification, Adoption Checklist, Specific Numbering Design, Data Set Requirements and Leaf Nut Guidance. Please also see the Street Lighting Adoption Process map (PDF).

If you would like any further information please contact our contractor, Skanska, directly via the contact details below;

Fees will be charged per asset to maintain the asset over a 30 year period. Fees may vary for non-standard or specialised equipment. Please be aware inspection fees are not included.
