Survey on Light Pollution

According to a CPRE/British Astronomical Association Survey on Light Pollution, eight out of ten people taking part in a survey, published in April 2010 by CPRE and the British Astronomical Association’s Campaign for Dark Skies, have their view of the night sky affected by light pollution. Of those affected, half said their sleep had been disrupted by excess artificial lighting. CPRE and the Campaign for Dark Skies (CfDS) are calling on councils, businesses and individuals to take steps to cut their light pollution. We also reiterate our call for the Government to introduce long awaited planning guidance to control lighting.
