City of Palmerston

As from 1 January 2018, the City of Palmerston will be in control of the management and maintenance of public lights within Palmerston area. This includes street and park lighting (but will exclude the lighting along Northern Territory Government roads).

The ongoing operation and maintenance of lighting is an important part of community safety.  Residents can assist by reporting any street light faults by contacting Council by:

If you are reporting a malfunction light, please be sure to provide Council with the light serial number (located about head height on the power pole) and the location of the light (street name and suburb).

If street lights are out due to a motor vehicle incident, please phone the Power and Water Corporation on 1800 245 092.


This form requires a valid phone number or email address. You will only be contacted if we are unable to identify the light based on the information you provided.

Street light(s) numbers are on a metal plate located about head-height on the pole.

If known, please identify the closest street number to the faulty street light(s).

Please identify the street on which the faulty street light(s) are located.
