Closed 23 Nov 2020

Opened 12 Oct 2020


Belfast City Council’s City Regeneration and Development Department have developed this strategy to look at Belfast’s current lighting provision and how and where improvements can be made to create a more balanced and interesting city at night. 

At the minute there are various agencies delivering lighting across the city with no unified approach.

Belfast City Council do not have any statutory powers for lighting in Belfast but this document presents a set of design guidelines for everyone who is designing and delivering lighting in the city to follow, this will form the basis of a more consistent lighting strategy for the city centre for the future.  

The strategy can be found here:
