The purpose of street lighting is to assist either drivers or pedestrians in finding their way in the dark, as well as providing for an aesthetically pleasing streetscape.
Almost all streetlights in the City of Canning are owned and maintained by Western Power. The City pays for the operation of the streetlights and for the upgrade or installation of new streetlights.
Streetlight faults can be reported to Western Power on 1800 622 008 or via their website.
Western Power’s preference is for residents to contact them directly regarding a fault so they can liaise directly with the caller should they need further information or clarification.
Requests for an upgrade to a streetlight or for a new streetlight are to be made to the City here
. We will investigate the request and should it be determined the upgrade or new streetlight is warranted, we will make an application to Western Power.
