Ecology and environmentally sensitive lighting

Street lighting mitigation strategies for environmentally challenging development sites – including sites with wildlife such as Bats, Newts or protected Birds.

For many years now MMA Lighting Consultancy Ltd have been successful in helping customers gain full planning permission on  ecologically sensitive housing development sites. We specialise in helping our customers discharge specific ecologically related planning conditions.

In each specific instance we have worked closely with our customers and their appointed ecologists to produce lighting solutions that are individually tailored to suit the site in question. Whilst working on these individual projects we have always ensured that we adhere to published guidelines such as the Institute of Lighting Professionals ‘Guidance Note 08 Bats and artificial lighting in the UK’ document and also other published information from important associations such as the Bat Conservation Trust.

Over the years MMA Lighting Consultancy Ltd has worked on housing development sites with Special Scientific Interest (SSSI’s) and sites in Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (ANOB’s). By working closely with ecologists, following published guidelines and using our years of experience we have enabled housing development sites to obtain full planning permission where others have failed.

If you have a planning condition that looks similar to the one detailed below and even more specifically details ecological constraints, then we can be of assistance in helping you to discharge the condition:-
