    Re: LED Flood lights for the garage

    Part P guidance here

    https://electrical.theiet.org/buildi...art-p/faqs.cfm

    Basically anything other than 'minor work' needs to be reported to planning control unless you use an electrician registered to do part P work.

    'Minor work' is defined in the link. Regardless of the reporting requirement, the work must be done in a competently.

    Adding an additional light to an existing cct seems to me to be to be a minor work to quote from the reference above:

    Examples include adding a lighting or power point to an existing circuit, adding a spur to an existing circuit or replacing a light fitting.
    - however this is my opinion based on the above quote, and I am neither a lawyer nor a person registered to do Part P work.

    If you are in any doubt, seek qualified advice.

    I was thinking of keeping the layout and the switch cabling, but replacing the actual fittings with LED ones (because the old ones are pretty knackered anyway).

    We have to cover both jurisdictions, now. Government cutbacks, y'know...

    Looking at the construction of this garage... and the barbican, for that matter... I doubt either of them have Part-P certification anyway. The delivery guys refused to wire in our new electric cooker because the fuse boxes were all too old.

    £3 for a floodlight

    I have 4 LED Bulbs (normal 60w replacements) in my garage, which whilst adequate 2 are covered by the garage door when it is up & over.

    Tempted to try ordering half a dozen of these (because...why not!!) and testing out different arrangement to get full light coverage!

    Re: LED Flood lights for the garage

    I had tubes in my last garage and the good ones were expensive.

    I had 3 pairs in there, with white board ceiling reflections, and it worked well but it was money and I still had shadows in places.

    these are quite easy to move...and besides.....it was a "thought" that devloped into a "sod it... lets try"
