Shedding the Light on Council Costs

For some time now the City of Unley Elected Members and Management have been conscious that we should be on the alert to look at ways of reducing the cost of lighting our public areas.

Street and Park lighting is indeed one of our major costs.
As part of assessing how we might go about this we have now engaged Complete Urban to undertake a public lighting audit. The lighting audit will involve staff from Complete Urban walking through the City’s streets recording information on electronic devices and taking photographs.
It is anticipated that the Complete Urban staff will be begin the audit this month and conclude in February 2014.
It will be interesting to find out how many lights we do have because our current lighting contract is based not on usage but a nominal number of poles in the City.
If you have any further queries please contact Council’s project officer, Matthew Sanderson on 8372 5468.
