Chairman of the council, Cllr Kathy Bishop said: "The council had agreed that if any of the parish council street lights required replacing, all new lights will be environmentally friendly solar lights to reduce electricity consumption.
The council installed four solar street lights at Gatekeeper Walk 18 months ago and planning permission has been granted to install a further two lights at in St James Road and Rampley Lane.
