Lighting nuisance survey 2009/10 Lighting nuisance survey 2009/10

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. Light pollution can diminish people's view of the night sky and for many people disturb their sleep with stray light shining through windows. We want to see better planning regulations to control lighting.
