How to become a Dark Skies Friendly Business?

To become a Dark Skies Friendly Business, we recommended you:

  • Light only what you need to
  • Use energy efficient bulbs and only as bright as you need – 500 lumens
  • Use lights that have a cover shield and only direct them down
  • Only use lights when you need them
  • Choose warm white light bulbs ~3,000k
  • Don’t light up the surrounding landscape or neighbouring properties

If you would like more information or to talk to our expert Dark Skies Ranger about what steps you can take to safe guard our night skies and become a Dark Skies Friendly business, please email info@southdowns.gov.uk or call 01730 814810.
