Question: What is County Council policy on street lights and insects?

Reported by Cllr Eric de la Harpe at 18:21, Tuesday 16 February 2021

I notice that the street lights in my street are lit throughout the night but OCC website states that you can dim lights in the early hours of the morning or even switch them off. Residents have raised the issue of insects affected by outside lighting and we want to discuss this at out next council meeting. Does OCC have a policy to protect insects? If our Town wishes to take action in this regard, who do we speak to at OCC to get more lights dimmed or switched off? Many thanks Eric
