Download the fourth edition of the Glint and Glare Guidance PDF here.
Two years after the third edition of Pager Power’s glint and glare guidance was released, the fourth edition is now available to download. You can download the guidance document from the link at the top of the page. The team will also be sharing the document with our clients and stakeholders accordingly.
The guidance document has been well received since its first edition back in 2017, and we are continually drawing from our experience in over 950 assessments completed in this area to date. Nevertheless, we are continually seeking to refine and improve the methodology so that stakeholders’ and clients’ concerns are understood and assessed appropriately. Therefore if you have any feedback on our guidance, our methodology and our reports, please get in touch.
Fourth Edition Changes
Amendments and revisions within the fourth edition include:
- An updated literature review section detailing changes to the USA’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) guidance;
- Inclusion of the UK’s Draft National Policy Statement for Renewable Energy Infrastructure guidance;
- Updates to impact classifications for roads, dwellings, railways and aviation within the significance flow charts.
The key changes are regarding the impact classifications and flow charts for the relevant receptors (road users, residents in surrounding dwellings, train driver and signals, and pilots and air traffic controllers). The reason for the change is to ensure the impact classification fits better with environmental impact assessment (EIA) terminology and to ensure the relative complexity of the assessment is suitably captured when going through the process of defining the overall impact. In addition to this, the flow charts have been adjusted to capture as many of the permutations and assessment outcomes as possible so that overall conclusions can more easily be determined and followed.
