Decision details

REG 391 - Heritage Street Lighting Programme

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No




That Cabinet agreed the recommendations of the report as follows:


1.     Cabinet agreed the proposed approach to conservation and replacement detailed in Section 4 of the report.

2.     Cabinet agreed that all historical lighting columns and fixtures should be retained, subject to the safety tests as set out in Section 11 of the report.

3.     Cabinet noted that retaining lighting columns was not provided for in the original PFI Contract and may involve a potential risk that may not be acceptable to the Service Provider (Hounslow Highways). Accordingly Cabinet noted that in these cases it may be necessary to De-accrue some apparatus on the lighting network and for the Council to assume responsibility.

4.     Cabinet agreed Option 2 for the replacement of modern ‘heritage style’ light columns with the higher quality DW Windsor lighting column with appropriate fixtures (retaining wherever possible existing unique fixtures and in the case of Half Acre, Brentford, lighting columns).

5.     Cabinet agreed the expenditure of £122, 364 from the Performance Improvement Fund as a one off contribution to the delivery of the heritage lighting replacement programme.
