Part night lighting

Exclusion process for part night lighting

Part night lighting operations in most residential areas will commence from 1 April 2019 between the hours of 1am and 4am. This was approved by the Executive Member for Economy, Transport and Environment on 29 October 2018 following a two month public consultation earlier in the year. See the  details of the full report, and consultation results.

This only accounts for lighting directly owned by Hampshire County Council and excludes the majority of Parish and District Local Lighting Authorities or other third party lighting, such as Housing Associations, Highways England or Ministry of Defence. A full list of areas to be excluded is listed below:

Principal routes
  • All A, B and C class roads   
  • Other routes near to railway stations where lighting provides main access to nearest principal route   
  • Lighting on side roads adjacent to signalised junctions with pedestrian crossing facilities or subway approaches   
  • Other routes where serious or fatal night-time accident records indicate a higher risk or where traffic numbers are known to be the same as a principal route especially where these provide a link between other principal routes
Town centres
  • All lighting within designated town centre areas as defined by Townscape Character Areas layer in the HCC Geographic Information System
  • Any lighting excluded by deviation of the town centre boundary on the same road or where omission would provide inconsistent lighting coverage in the otherwise lit town centre area
Non dimming units
  • All subways, illuminated traffic signs, Belisha or centre island beacons
  • Any unit fitted with a photocell or timer device
Parish or District owned lights
  • Any item maintained on behalf of a local Parish, Town, District or Borough Council who have not opted into the part-night initiative
Residential traffic calming
