Street Lighting Masterplan for the Papakura Town Centre to improve the lighting in key retail streets. Consideration had to be given to address function as well as form. Following an initial design and pilot programme on two key streets the decision was made to incorporate the design into a wider project to revitalise the Papakura Town Centre. The Council then engaged LDP in the process for the identification and design of other lighting options for feature lighting that was distinctive and reflected the Papakura context, but which also aided in lighting key spaces and places.
Crime prevention and the reduction of light pollution are two areas that LDP are very conscious of and these factors are an important consideration when approaching all urban lighting projects.
Creating places that we want to use and that work well, and that celebrate the natural environment. The challenge is to build on and expand the positive aspects of our diverse urban areas, to ensure they are socially inclusive, economically prosperous and environmentally responsible, fulfilling the promise of sustainable development.
