Council Responds To Concerns Over Innovation Centre Lights
They’ve responded after one islander complained that the former wholesaler building is, “lit up like a Christmas tree” and creating unnecessary light pollution.
Mark Prebble, who has a business on the Industrial Estate, has also questioned why, “all the outside lights are blazing away.”
We contacted the Town Hall on 20th October. Yesterday they responded and told us that external lights have been incorporated into the development to allow safe and secure 24-hour access to the building.
They say the LED bulbs consume less than 1 unit of electricity per night and the photovoltaic roof cells have generated more than 5500 kWh of electricity since installation.
The Council press statement claims that the energy is used to power the building and has saved the Council over £100.
