I contacted Essex County Council about turning off the lights from 12 instead of 1 to 5 am stating that it would save them money.
I got a reply from a ‘Customer Services Officer’ with a link to the lighting section and council policy which seems to be set in stone !
Jeremy, there is also the issue of the impact of white LEDs on nocturnal animals !
They just don’t get it !!
