A question I asked Suffolk County Council about Streetlighting curbs in my area....
Dear Mr Watling
we are currently investigating remote monitoring and control systems and will soon be having talks with adjacent local authorities regarding part night lighting or dimming but as yet there have been no decisions. We will need to consult with our own Councillors, Parish and District Councils prior to any decision.
Part night lighting was precisely what used to happen not so many years ago but was done away with on grounds of both personal safety and traffic safety - extended opening times have not helped!
Regarding good clear skies, we are gradually replacing old units which cause light pollution with those causing zero uplighting.
