Overview

The event is relatively small and contained, with opening only for a few hours at a dormant time of year. We do not foresee any adverse effect on wildlife.

Bats

Every care is taken to ensure that any potential bat roosts are not lit directly to avoid any potential disturbance during hibernation, and special bath flying zones have been designed into the event.

Lighting Trail

The generators used on the trail are silent ones and will be inaudible to the public.  The power will be carried using cabling with no adverse effect on wildlife. Where possible routes will be on hard surfaces and established paths. They pass through areas which are well-walked by visitors daily and will not take in any sections of sensitive areas.

The route proposed for the trail, is walked and checked on a regular basis with ground staff from the venue, this is an ongoing process throughout the design of the event. This event is planned and installed by a company who have …

Sustainability

• The trail designers,  have been appointed on the strength of their experience of working in environmentally sensitive ways in heritage and landscape settings. • Wherever possible we use mains power. Where generators are needed, these are carefully specified and operated to ensure the most efficient fuel usage. Low wattage lighting units are used where possible on the trail. • …

Fuel Usage

Wherever possible fuel for power generation is kept to a minimum by efficient use of power loadings and low wattage lighting units.

Noise Pollution

The sounds created for the event are used to provide atmosphere. All sounds are part of the route and are therefore contained within defined spaces. There is no noise pollution over and above the natural sound level created by the presence of people on the trail.

Light Pollution

The trail will be architecturally lit by experienced lighting designers who have developed sensitive ways of working in heritage and landscape settings. Responding to the natural darkness of the sites is a key element of the event.  We try to avoid continuous lighting of the trail, using just low level lighting to show the way between elements, we only use …
