Light Glare

Light emissions can potentially create nuisance conditions. 

Council investigates complaints about light and glare from a variety of sources including: 

  • advertising signs, 
  • entertainment venues and events, 
  • Council's parks, properties and streetlights, and 
  • commercial and private properties (such as flood lights or sensor lights).

When investigating a light complaint, Council will consider:

  • the amount and direction of light
  • the times, duration and rate of emission 
  • the light's characteristics and qualities
  • impact of the light on health
