The new LED lighting being introduced by TfL is being implemented in the vicinity of the Observatory without consultation and, more importantly, without any steps to ameliorate the potential impact of light pollution from the new street lights on the Observatory's work . At the end of last year, a single new LED lamp standard (which they understand to be a "master" lamp, intended to act as a control node for future lamps) was installed near the Observatory. That lamp, unlike the unit it replaced, has no internal baffles, no external shielding, and produces direct glare onto the site, with a broad-band spectrum. The Observatory has tried to work with TfL but has now received a response which clearly implies that no further action is planned - not even installing shielding on the new lamp to remove the direct glare from which they now suffer. Will you visit the Observatory with me yourself, to see both the extraordinary and internationally recognised research work they do (and in relation to their recent discovery of a super nova you complimented them), the impact of light pollution form which they now suffer; and ensure that action is taken as with the previous lighting to reduce the impact of this pollution on their work?
