City lighting strategy

Thank you for having your say

We held a public consultation on the draft City Lighting Strategy at the beginning of year and we are now​ finalising the strategy with an aim of adopting it by end of Summer 2018.

The City of London's first lighting 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.
