By working together in collaboration with all local authorities of England & Wales, the  LANTERNS project aims to answer reliably the important question of whether reducing night-time streetlight for environmental and energy reasons, has any impact on road traffic crashes and crime.


  • Collate information across the country on streetlight reduction schemes
  • Statistically examine whether reduced streetlight at night has any effect on road traffic crashes and crime
  • Explore public opinion on streetlight provision and the potential for reducing streetlight at night
  • Investigate whether streetlight reduction schemes offer value for money
  • Create a resource for all local authorities interested in implementing streetlight reduction schemes
