Report street light problems

Report non-urgent street lighting faults

If the problem with the street light, illuminated sign or bollard is urgent, you can:

  1. Check if the fault has already been reported. Search for an existing fault on Lighting Up Oldham & Rochdale
  2. If not already reported, please report the problem online on the Lighting Up Oldham & Rochdale website.
  3. If possible, please give us detailed information about the problem. For example, tell us if the light is out altogether, going on and off, burning all day or intermittent and include the number of the column if you can. If you can't see this then please state the exact location or adjacent house number.

We aim to fix non-urgent faults within 5 working days unless we're really busy or the weather is bad. For problems with the electricity cable feeding the column, we notify the utility who'll attend after getting our report. We'll come out to assess the damage to leaning or damaged lamp columns and determine how urgent the job is.
