Old Highway - New Streetlights

We're replacing 22 streetlight lamps along the Old Highway, Colwyn Bay with warm amber LED lamps - to benefit the local woodland wildlife. This includes the local population of Lesser Horseshoe Bats, a European protected species, which roost and feed in the area.

The new orange-coloured lamps meet road lighting design safety standards while reducing light pollution which affects the bats, birds, moths and other nocturnal wildlife.

The replacement lamps and installation costs are 100% funded by Welsh Government's Local Places for Nature fund. The removed lamps will be reused in other street lighting.
