Lighting Plan

Events that finish after sunset will require a lighting plan as part of the risk management and crowd management plans, particularly crowd departure. Adequate lighting is also required for packing down. 

Event Lighting Plans must consider the effect on Parklands wildlife by:

  • Utilising either low pressure sodium lamps with UV filters for all lighting, or alternative lighting that will minimise adverse impacts 
  • Minimising the time during which the lighting is used
  • Use lowest possible brightness for all lighting
  • Where possible, direct light below the horizontal plane towards the path and shield vegetation by fitting lights with hoods.
