Light Nuisance and the Public Health etc (Scotland) Act 2008

Post by RB »

One for the "Jockanese" contingent. It's rather a weighty document, but the part on lighting is quite short and concise. Be sure to check out appendix 2 as well.

Basically, obtrusive lighting can now be considered a STATUTORY nuisance in Scotland, and unlike England and Wales, this can be applied to street lighting as well. I await the first cases with keen interest.
