Light pollution

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.
