Replacement by LEDs programme

Replacement by LEDs programme


Phase 1

A limited successful trial of LED lamp replacements in areas across Essex.


Phase 2

A two year programme of work to replace 19,000 street lights with energy-saving LED lamps across the county began in August 2016.  The new LED lamps are longer-lasting, require less maintenance and use less electricity than other conventional lamps.

They are set to be installed on all-night street lights across the county and predicted to save taxpayers thousands on electricity costs.

The first phase of work started in Castle Point and Rochford followed by Basildon. This was be followed by crews starting replacement work in Chelmsford and Uttlesford, followed by the remaining districts.
For further information about the programme please view the frequently asked questions found in the Document Section below.

Essex County Council agreed investment for Phase 3 to install a further 23,000 LED streetlights on main roads across Essex.
