This new ordinance, explained Sergio, you have to take into account the scientific studies and European standards in this field, governing all the points necessary to prevent light pollution (types of lamps and lighting in new developments and roads newly established power control in ornamental lighting, power regulation schedules in winter and summer, etc.).
In this sense, he argued that "an inefficient or poorly designed outdoor lighting to send light into the sky, the lack of regulation time off monumental or ornamental lighting or use excessive power, generate light pollution."
He reported that the association against light pollution in the Region of Murcia "Cel Fosc" had been in contact with the City Council to report on the negative consequences of poor lighting in the population and to offer their collaboration and advice in solving this problem.
