Nuisance lighting in Thurlaston
A Thurlaston resident worries that night-time lighting will confuse bats and wildlife
Nuisance night-time lights are confusing bats and wildlife, said a Thurlaston resident at a recent parish council meeting.
“Thurlaston is a dark sky village,” she said. “But it is like Blackpool Illuminations at night.”
New empty houses on Biggin Hall Lane have lights which, the resident complains, are left on all night.
“The hope was that if someone moved in we could ask them to turn [the lights] off. The builder does know,” she says.
“There is no need for the lights to be on all night. We have put up with it for two years. Environmental Health calls it a neighbours’ dispute and will not get involved.”
The resident was speaking Thurlaston Parish Council meeting on 11 January 2021. Any members of the public living in Thurlaston can attend parish council meetings, which are held on the second Monday of the month, every two months, at 7:00 pm.
