Information and contact information to report faulty street lights
Street Lights on Public Highways
The majority of street lights in Torridge are the responsibility of Devon County Council. They maintain all street lights on adopted roads and footpaths. To report a faulty street light, please contact the County Council directly:
- Telephone: 0845 155 1004 (8am-8pm Mon-Fri; 9am-1pm Saturdays)

The County Council has no statutory obligation to provide street lighting on highways. It has introduced a policy to switch off or dim lighting in residential areas between the hours of 12.30am and 5.30am. Further information can be found in the County Council's Street Lighting Policy on their website.
