Lights nuisances come from many sources like security lights, spot lights and floodlights.
Investigating reports of light nuisance
We investigate reports of light nuisance in line with our Local Law No. 10 (Public Health) 1999. We investigate:
the amount of light being emitted
how long the light is on
the type of light
the sensitivity of the environment
the impact the light has had or may have
the opinions of other neighbours.
If we find that the light is causing a nuisance, we may issue a compliance notice to the light owner. In the compliance notice, we explain the problem and give a timeframe for the light owner to fix the issue. We may issue a fine if the light owner does not comply with the notice.
