Switch off outdoor lighting on 21 May

To celebrate dark skies, Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is calling on everyone to switch off their outdoor lights on Friday 21 May. See www.surreyhills.org/celebrating-our-night-skies

Effingham’s Neighbourhood Plan has policy ENP-ENV4, which states:
“All proposed developments should have regard to Effingham’s current status as a ‘dark skies’ area, and proposals should avoid light pollution and protect the night-time environment of intrinsically dark areas of the village and countryside.”
and
“Innovative green solutions for appropriate lighting will be encouraged.”
