Calpe to investigate measures to reduce light pollution

The city council in Calpe have opened a consultation over light pollution and measures that the local authority could take to lessen the amount of light in the night sky.

Citizens will have until the end of next month to provide their feedback on the proposals, which will focus on reducing light pollution, as well as enforcing restrictions on the hours where non-essential lighting – such as on adverts and for decorative purposes on landmarks – can be used.

Advocates for the plans say the changes will help ensure people sleep better, as well as providing benefits to the local ecology.
