What you can do to help reduce light pollution
Do you have issues with streetlighting in your neighbourhood?
Does light from nearby streetlighting trespass into your home?
Does streetlight glare make walking in your street difficult or uncomfortable?
Are your nearby streetlights too bright?
Are you concerned about excessive blue light from streetlights?
If you have concerns about streetlighting you need to raise your concerns with your local government representative and mayor. If you say nothing, they will do nothing.
We suggest you send an email to your relevant local representatives and let them know you care about our evening skies and want good decisions made regarding the deployment of LED street lighting in South East Queensland. Click below for email addresses.
Lord Mayor – Brisbane City Council
Mayor – Gold Coast City Council
Mayor – Sunshine Coast Council
We suggest you also identify your local government Councillor and send the email to them too. Find Councillor email address details here: Brisbane Ipswich Logan Scenic Rim Gold Coast Moreton Bay Sunshine Coast Somerset Region Lockyer Valley Toowoomba Southern Downs Gympie Region South Burnett Region
If you live in Brisbane you should also direct your concerns to Councillor Andrew Wines, who is the Chair of the BCC Infrastructure Committee: firstname.lastname@example.org Councillor Wines must be made aware of public concerns about LED street lighting. If he fails to receive complaint he will fail to act on the issue.
