Too Much Light
Problems of light pollution in the village were raised at this month’s meeting of the Parish Council last night.
Lighting installed at the new development at Skinners’ Meadow is upsetting both residents of the new housing and other local people.
Back at the project’s planning stage the PC, in line with their long-standing policy, opposed the installation of street lighting at the site but agreed that low level lighting in the two car-parking areas might be appropriate. However the lights installed are thought to be far too bright and, worst of all, are “on” continuously from dusk to dawn.
The Council agreed to contact Saffron Housing to request modifications to the scheme including PIR switching, so that the lights come on only when needed.
