Report an issue with artificial light

We can take action against nuisance caused by artificial light from premises (excluding transport facilities, freight depots, lighthouses, defence premises and prisons).

Light nuisance is a source of light that in the opinion of a trained public health professional, who makes an assessment on a case by case basis, interferes with someone's use of their property, and/or is prejudicial to someone's health. It must be more than simply an annoyance. An example of a light that may be a nuisance we can take action over is where light is spilling onto a property causing a neighbour's rooms to be lit up at night.
