Guidelines for Town and Parish Councils on Dark Night Sky

St Breward Parish is fortunate to fall within a designated Dark Sky Landscape: a dark night sky is good for wildlife; offers health benefits and enjoyment; is important for astronomy and science, can increase tourism opportunities and improves energy efficiency.  Cornwall Council has issued planning guidelines to enable people living within this area, and developers, to  limit the impact of light pollution and to read these, please click here.

This document includes a ‘nightblight‘ map published by the Council for the Protection of Rural England showing light pollution throught the UK – interesting to see!
