Pollution Control – Obtrusive Lighting

If not properly controlled, obtrusive lighting can cause nuisance for others. 

Due to relatively low levels of light pollution Pembrokeshire has spectacular night skies, key partners in Pembrokeshire including the National Park Authority strive to keep our stars shining bright.  If your event runs into the evening think about how you can reduce light pollution by lighting what people need to see such as the ground rather letting light spill up into the sky – you are likely to reduce your energy costs and enhance the unique Pembrokeshire ambience of your event.

The Institution of Lighting Professionals – Guidance for the reduction of obtrusive light provides suggestions on how to minimise the problem.
