Norbury Park Green Lane – BMX Track. (17/01853/DISC). Discharge of conditions 2,4,6. Informative(s):
‘1. Bats are highly sensitive to light disturbance. In order to limit this disturbance, lighting should be controlled throughout the site during development and during the site’s operation so as to avoid potential spillage of artificial lighting onto nearby buildings and trees. The lighting scheme should:
– Minimise the spread of light onto boundary habitats through the use of hoods and directional louvers;
– Limit the times that lights are on to provide some dark periods;
– Use low intensity bulbs, that emit minimal ultra-violet light;
– Use lights that peak higher than 550 nm; and
– Avoid white and blue wavelengths of the light spectrum to reduce insect attraction. Where white light sources are required they should be of a warm/neutral colour temperature <4,200 kelvin.
Further information for designing the lighting scheme can be found in the Bat Conservation Trust’s ‘Recommendations to help minimise the impact of artificial lighting’ (BCT, 2014) and the Institution of Lighting Professionals ‘Guidance Notes for the Reduction of Obtrusive Light’ (ILP, 2011).’
