City lighting strategy

We want to hear from you

Give us your views on the City of London Corporation's first lighting strategy.

This strategy, developed with lighting designer Speirs and Major, aims to deliver a holistic, creative and smart approach to balance light and darkness, which will better define urban spaces in the Square Mile.

The objective is to provide the City with the lighting it needs and improve the quality of life for its workers and residents, by avoiding unnecessary light pollution, over-lighting, excessive glare and inconsistencies in lighting design.

Our consultation closes on Friday 2 March 2018.
