More for future reference and a reminder to research it more when I have the time, I wanted to flag up this Guardian article on Toulouse’s new street-lighting system. Interestingly, they’re installing street lights that are dimmer when there are no people around, thus saving energy, reducing light pollution and possibly creating an interesting set of questions for philosophers to discuss.

This is possibly something to feed into Colchester’s lighting strategy, which we discussed at Policy Panel last month, but is still in a draft stage. Any thoughts or comments?
