Before you start

Please check we're responsible for the light you want to report a fault with.

If the light is outwith East Renfrewshire you'll have to report this to the authority that's responsible for the light.

You'll be asked to tell us the unit number of the light you're reporting. The unit number is a black number on a white label on the front of the unit. For example, R1, S1, RP1.

If you don't have the unit number you can give us a clear description of where the unit is such as a nearby house number.
