Street lighting in Kesgrave is, in the main, owned by Suffolk County Council. However, there are some lights in the older areas of Kesgrave owned by the Town Council. The latter were erected many years ago and so are mostly footway lighting which doesn't give the spread of light the newer lights provide. As the Town Council-owned lights are maintained under contract to the County Council most fault problems should result in a speedy repair.
If a street light is found to be faulty residents have various methods of reporting the problem. Firstly by ringing the number displayed on the column or alternatively you can contact Suffolk County Council's Customer Services on 0845 606 6067 or e-mail email@example.com.
A lot depends on the schedule at the time of the report as the contractors need to plan their work, but generally two weeks should mean a repair is in place. If you have reported a fault and nothing has happened, or if you cannot see a telephone number to ring, please call the Town Council on 625179 who will pass on the message. And don't leave it to someone else to do it, we would rather have the same faulty light reported several times than not at all.
