Lighting provided by a lamp post has three classifications based on it’s location, motorway lighting, highway lighting and foot way lighting. The responsible authority for each category is listed below:
- Motorway lighting is maintained by the Highways Agency
- Highway lighting is maintained by Cambridgeshire County Council
- Foot way lighting is maintained by the St Neots Town Council.
In the majority of cases schemes for foot way lighting may have been provided by the Town Council but are “adopted” by the County Council for long term maintenance.
