Light pollution in Bath and its rural fringes continues to get worse, as our Green Belt is eroded and with the proliferation of cheap to run, blue spectrum LEDs. Increasing obtrusive light along the skyline to the south of Bath, and harmful effects of light spill and sky glow on landscape character. Increasing luminosity can have a significant intrusive disturbance to habitats, contrary to B&NES’ objectives for the Climate and Ecological Emergency. Blue spectrum LEDs used in street lighting are a real problem for many species of insects, causing populations to crash and upsetting the food chain. This Earth hour join residents and business across Bath in a collective attempt to reduce sky glow by switching off and dimming lights and restore the night sky for wildlife and stargazing.
