The (a) procurement and (b) design of LED street lighting is entirely a matter for each individual local highway authority.

The Department for Transport endorses the UK Roads Liaison Group’s Well Managed Highway Infrastructure Code of Practice which includes advice and guidance to highway authorities on all aspects of highways maintenance and management, including street lighting.

The Code includes links to the Institution of Lighting Professionals website which provides a wide range of resources for lighting professionals from free downloads to Professional Lighting Guides, technical reports and general publications on the latest issues within the industry.
