WHY WORK WITH DFL?

The road to a successful project always goes straight through planning, but poor lighting advice can lead to project delays and put you on a road to nowhere. The planner’s job is to ensure that your lighting meets their policies, and to do that they need to see a convincing and compliant lighting proposals.  We provide industry-leading lighting solutions which tick all the boxes for planners. We will take you from where you are now, to a detailed report that will give the planners the confidence to approve your proposals. Keep it simple, let’s talk about a plan.

OUR WORK

Reduce potential impact on the environment and ecology while increasing the likelihood of clearing planning – we can provide a professional Lighting Impact Assessment to help bring your project to fruition.
Light pollution is detrimental to both ecology and people whilst also wasting energy. This impacts the environment and contributes to climate change. You should be able to provide evidence to the Planning Authority that the lighting considers all sensitivities.

Important things to consider are:

  • The environment/surrounds
  • Ecological constraints
  • What needs to be lit?
  • Ability to demonstrate that your lighting is fit for purpose
  • Ability to demonstrate that your lighting will not be detrimental to sensitive receptors.
