Streetlight Upgrade

Over the next 12-months or so Ivinghoe Parish Council are planning to upgrade the existing stock of streetlights to new LED technology.

This upgrade has been brought about as from April 2020 the one manufacturer of the orange sodium lamps will cease production, thereby meaning we will be unable to maintain our existing stock of streetlights.

It is also a good time to take stock and if possible install additional lights where needed.
