Street Lighting & Street Furniture

Skipton Town Council is responsible for the maintenance of a substantial number of discretionary street lights (generally away from main highways), together with other items of street furniture such as public seating, litter bins and dog waste bins.

All are inspected and maintained on a regular basis. A contract is in place for the regular emptying of litter bins and dog waste bins.

It should be noted that some litter and dog waste bins are the responsibility of other authorities such as Craven District Council or, in areas along the canal towpaths, the Canal & River Trust.

Public seating is provided in many areas of the Town - and some seating includes commemorative plaques. If you have any queries concerning plaques - or the provision of additional seats as a memorial to a loved one - you should contact the Council's Estates Manager, Joel Henderson, on (01756) 700553.
