Farnborough Village Street Lighting

Having had feedback from the residents that street lighting was a necessity for safety and security purposes, the Parish Council undertook, alongside Warwickshire County Council (WCC), a full audit of the existing street lighting in the village. Much of the lighting, whilst in working order, was obsolete, showing signs of decay and in need of replacement.


WCC responded to a brief from the Parish Council with a proposal to use heritage light columns with a Victorian lamp or a standard black metal pole with an LED lantern – there was no difference in terms of lighting efficiency between the two options. They also suggested re-siting some lights where mature trees had started to block lighting.
