Dark Skies?

An orange glow now lights the dark night sky


Imagine the light pollution from a development such as this. As the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) has so often stated in its recent initiatives on the subject of light intrusion into rural areas, the loss of rural dark skies is as damaging to the rural quality of life and tranquillity as are more conventional and less measurable issues of visual intrusion. This fact is too often not taken into account when assessing environmental impacts.
