THE GRID: a benefit for ILP members and those who light the UK’s highways and infrastructure

A simple way of identifying who’s who in highways and infrastructure lighting, locating contact details and keeping in touch with public lighting peers. Available free of charge to members logged into MyILP, THE GRID is downloadable in the user-friendly format of a password protected excel spreadsheet.

THE GRID is a niche service provided free of charge for all lighting professionals involved in the delivery of public lighting services for UK highways and infrastructure via local authorities or contractors.

Contact details are verified at least every three months, enabling THE GRID to remain current and grow as a comprehensive and valuable resource for ILP members.

Inclusion in THE GRID means:

  • You receive a quarterly bulletin focussed on specific issues in the sector
  • You can keep up to date with colleagues’ roles and developments across the UK
  • You are able to share knowledge and ideas with your peers in a non-commercial environment

We are very happy to continue to add people to this living resource.  If you wish to be added, please provide the following information:

Local authority or Highway Agency area
Last name
Job title
Phone number
Email address

All these details must be your WORK details and must relate to a specific local authority or Highway Agency area.

If you are responsible for more than one local authority, please provide contact details for EACH location.
