The Kettering Rural team works closely with other agencies and the local community to tackle the crime and disorder concerns and issues identified within the neighbourhood.

Street lighting

Responsibility for maintaining street lights on Burton Latimer’s main and residential roads is divided between Northamptonshire County Council and Kettering Borough Council.

Street lighting remains the responsibility of the developer on new estates until the road is adopted by the relevant authority.

In recent years, old incandescent lamps have been replaced by more efficient – and brighter – LEDs.

Report a street-lighting problem

To report a faulty street-light, please call 0800 0850257 – or use the street doctor link
