british standard
specification no. 307, 1931, for street lighting

A revised specification was issued in 1931 which omitted the glare calculations. This specification was quickly overtaken by the MOT Reports of 1935 and 1937 but remained the British Standard until withdrawn in 1948.







ministry of transport
departmental committee on street lighting, interim report, 1935

In 1934, the Ministry Of Transport formed a Departmental Committee of Street Lighting to examine and report what steps could be taken for securing more efficient and uniform street lighting. The Intermin Report was issued in 1935 as many lighting authorities were postponing new installations.

This document, and the Final Report, would have a profound influence on street lighting in the UK for the next seventy years.







ministry of transport
departmental committee on street lighting, final report, 1937

In 1934, the Ministry Of Transport formed a Departmental Committee of Street Lighting to examine and report what steps could be taken for securing more efficient and uniform street lighting. In 1937, they issued this The Final Report.

It was adopted by many lighting authorities as a new standard. The MOT would also only partially fund installations which adhered to this report.

It would have a profound influence on street lighting in the UK for the next seventy years, and directly led to the Street Lighting: Code Of Practice 1004:1952.
