Your views are sought on a draft Edinburgh Lighting Strategy

On 6 October 2011 the Council's Planning Committee approved a draft version of the Edinburgh Lighting Strategy for consultation purposes. 

The aim of the strategy is to reinforce the character of our unique capital city and provide a safe environment for its use and enjoyment by achieving coherent lighting schemes that are well conceived, designed and maintained.

The draft strategy outlines four broad strategic objectives based on: supporting Edinburgh's role as the economic, cultural and ceremonial capital of Scotland; enhancing community safety, security, amenity and circulation for both pedestrians and road users; developing a co-ordinated and coherent approach to lighting, making lighting design an intrinsic part of streets and places; and encouraging designs which minimise energy use, cost and light pollution. 

Consultation on the draft strategy has now commenced and your views are sought by 31 December 2011.
