Street Lighting


We currently maintain approximately 32,000 Street Lights and 4,000 Lit Traffic Signs and Bollards.

These are on publicly maintained roads and footpaths throughout the city of Aberdeen. There are a number of car parking areas provided for residents of Council housing where the lighting is maintained by the Street Lighting Service, however some are the responsibility of Housing Repairs, as is the case with most relating to Sheltered and Extra Care Housing complex areas.

The Contact Centre and Lighting Service staff have access to records relating to the aforementioned.

Any Private or Housing Association parking areas are not maintained by Aberdeen City Council.

You can  report a fault relating to street lighting in Aberdeen City through our online service.

Please do not use this form:

  1. If the lamp's door is off, or wires are exposed.
    This is an emergency and should be reported at any time on 03000 200 292.
  2. To check up on the progress of a previously reported fault, whether it has been attended to but is still faulty OR it is outwith the normal 7 day response time for non-urgent faults. In this instance contact the Roads Depot on 01224 241500.


Report a concern via our Report It page.
