Parish Partnership Grant – New LED Street Lamps

February 9th, 2014

Some of you eagle eyed residents may have noticed that we have a new design of street lamp in some areas.  These are LED type lamps and are considerably cheaper to run than our standard sodium lamps.

Thirty of these lamps replaced the old style lamps in Pound Green at a cost of £12,427.   75% of this cost was obtained through a grant from the Norfolk County Council Parish Partnership Scheme, which the Parish Council successfully applied for last year.

As part of the on-going street lamp replacement going on in Shipdham, the Parish Council also replaced 12 lamps in Bradenham Road along with the concrete columns. Over the coming years it is the Parish Council’s intention to replace all the sodium lamps with LED lamps as part of our on-going replacement of the old concrete columns and obsolete lights within the village.  The Council is likely to spend £12,000 next year on further replacement of columns and sodium lamp heads.
