Artificial light

Artificial light, for example from outdoor security lights, can cause a nuisance to individuals and even affect their health.

Please do not use this service to report issues relating to street lighting. Instead reports of this nature should be directed to Kent County Council via this webpage:, where a reference number will be assigned and progress can be tracked. Reports of street lighting made via our light nuisance service will not be responded to.
