There are far too many streetlights on all night in the centre of Cholsey outside my house. Yet again I’ve been awake since 4am because of this ridiculously wasteful light pollution. I see that other councils (Essex, Hampshire) are turning off streetlights at night. Can I make a plea that you either turn them off completely after midnight, or at least reduce the number or the brightness? What is the point of them now? Cars have headlights, pedestrians have phones and most nights moonlight and/or starlight is adequate to see your way around. Think of the money you’d save, even if saving the planet isn’t a priority! Yours sincerely Catherine Fellows

There are far too many super bright streetlights on all night in the centre of Cholsey outside my house. Yet again I’ve been awake since 4am because of this ridiculously wasteful light pollution.

Cars have headlights, pedestrians have phones and most nights moonlight and/or starlight is adequate to see your way around. Crime deterrent? I doubt...
