Report light pollution

If an artificial light, like a security light, is affecting your property because it is overly bright, you can report it to us for investigation.

If you are experiencing light pollution caused by a neighbour, we would always recommend you speak to your neighbour about the issue first. They may be able to simply redirect the light or use a lower wattage bulb.

If attempts to resolve the issue with the owner of the light have been unsuccessful, please report it to us. 

For more information on what is classed as an artificial light nuisance and what we can do please see:
