Seafront laser light display finally approved

After months of wrangling, final approval has been given for a laser light display on Weymouth seafront.

The Veils of Light scheme is now set to be turned on by next February.

As part of the agreement for the lights scheme to go ahead, Weymouth and Portland Borough Council have had to confirm to the Maritime and Coastguard Agency that it will not interfere with search and rescue operations.

The council has agreed that the lights will be turned off if the coastguard helicopter is required to perform a sea rescue.

The lights display will comprise seven columns of different colours, varying in height from 14 to 15 metres tall, which will stand along the promenade, projecting green laser lights downwards at angles a few hundred metres into the sea.

The lights, which will be computer-controlled, will operate during the evening but will be turned off at night.
