Artificial light

You can report nuisance cases of artificial light from domestic or commercial premises, including security lights or exterior lights on buildings.

For light to be considered a nuisance, it would have to affect a person’s health or use of their home.

Once we receive a complaint about artificial light nuisance, we will investigate by contacting the person responsible to try and resolve the problem.

If artificial light is still an issue after this, we can potentially serve an Abatement Notice.
