Protecting Scalford's Dark Night Sky


Proposals for development including outdoor lighting should include details of such schemes as part of the submitted planning application, and should demonstrate that:

i) The proposed lighting does not exceed that required for essential security or working purposes

ii) Light spillage and glare are restricted by their design and positioning on buildings, particularly in areas of open countryside or on the edge of settlements

iii) There is no unacceptable impact on amenity, wildlife, or the present level of the Plan Area’s current night sky illumination level.
