Light pollution

Artificial light is essential and we all use it for many different things including:

  • to light streets and roads at night
  • as a security measure to protect homes and businesses
  • to increase the hours we can play sports outdoors

However, increased use of lighting has resulted in problems. Light in the wrong place at the wrong time can be intrusive and there have been more complaints about light pollution in recent years.
