Kingston Council has been working on a policy to provide guidelines and principles for the provision of street and public place lighting to ensure safe movement of vehicles and pedestrians and to discourage illegal and antisocial activity.

The draft Kingston Public Lighting Policy provides direction on the design approach for the installation of new or replacement public lighting and the procedures that Council will follow in order to manage the provision of Public Lighting.

Scope

• Residential zones

• Commercial zones including major and minor activity centres

• Foreshore zones

• Parks, foreshores and passive recreational areas

• School and safety zones

• External lighting of public buildings

• Industrial zones

• Narrow roads and laneways

• Sporting facilities.
