We are currently experiencing issues with our bin collections which means we have not been able to make it to some properties on the scheduled day. We apologise to everyone affected by this. To help alleviate the issue whilst a long-term solution is devised, we are suspending garden waste and glass, cans and plastic collections for up to two months from 8 July 2019. More details.
Measures are required to ensure that light pollution is kept to a minimum.
However, certain premises have high levels of light intensity for safety and security reasons.
Problem lighting that may be viewed as a statutory nuisance is assessed during an investigation and explores possible factors, including:
- Activities the light pollution is intruding upon
- Duration of issue
- Time at which it occurs
- Character of the area
Street lighting engineers design all street lighting installations to take into account the current BS EN13201:2003 regulations.
You can use our "Report a nuisance" form to report possible light pollution issues.
