25.6.2 Objectives and Policies: Lighting and Glare

​​​Objective Policies​
25.6.2.1
An environment free from the adverse effects of int​​rusive lighting. 
25.6.2.1a
Ensure that light spill and glare do not detract from the amenity values of other properties, compromise traffic safety, or have a negative effect on people's health and general welfare.​

Explanation

Intrusive lighting may include light from floodlights, security lights and activities such as welding. Light spill and glare have the potential to disturb people's sleep, which could adversely affect their health and general welfare. Unlike other adverse effects of activities, like smoke or n​​oise, which are difficult to contain completely, light spill is reasonably simple to avoid by correct aiming or baffling (shading) of the light source.
