Light pollution

Lighting use is increasing in our modern society; the illumination of streets, roads and hazardous areas; outdoors sports and recreational facilities; security; enhancement of buildings at night, etc. However, this can cause problems. Light in the wrong place at the wrong time can be intrusive. This has led to an increase in complaints about light to local authorities in recent years.

This guide provides information on different types of light pollution, the steps that can be taken to reduce it and what you can do if you have a problem from light.
