Reducing Street Lighting

A Shrewton resident who is a keen astronomer asked the Parish Council if street lighting could be reduced to provide a dark sky for better viewing of the heavens.

In turn Shrewton Parish Council asked the people at Wiltshire Council, who provide street lighting, to turn our lights off between midnight and 5:30 am.

A response has now been received with maps included. Each of the attached maps, MAP1, MAP2 and MAP3, have rings around the lights that will be turned off. Some need to stay on for safety reasons but most can be turned off. (The light symbols are quite small on these maps – so look carefully!)
