Are your readers' lives blighted by too much light at night?
The Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) and the British Astronomical Association's Campaign for Dark Skies are running a survey to find out how people are affected by light pollution, and where it is coming from.
We are hoping to gather evidence to support our campaign to rein in excessive lighting, which is also a huge waste of energy and money.
At the moment, there is no requirement for the effects to be considered before new lighting schemes are put in place.
The unrestricted spread of light can cause a variety of problems; an often-reported one is that people can find it difficult to sleep due to light spilling into their bedrooms or the glare from nearby domestic security lights.
People often do not know where to turn to resolve the problem and so suffer in silence.
