Lighting nuisance survey 2009/10: Report

The Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) and the British Astronomical Association’s Campaign for Dark Skies (CfDS) came together in late 2009 to run a survey about how light pollution is affecting people’s lives. Our survey revealed that the main culprits are road lighting, domestic security lighting, street lights that are more than five years old, businesses, sports grounds and supermarkets.

A survey of local authority approaches in England

In early 2014 CPRE carried out a survey of English local authorities to find out how they approach lighting in their areas. The results presented in this report create a detailed picture of lighting issues in England, with the aid of a number of local case studies. The report also makes nine recommendations to help local authorities reduce light pollution and protect existing dark areas while saving energy.
