There are navigation bylaws related to light pollution that the Authority would do well to make use of. As someone who often navigates after dark, both sailing or returning from a fishing trip, I never cease to be amazed at the number of riverside security lights and the like that blight our rivers.

I thought cars had headlights.

Got to agree with JR there. I've traveled down river through Horning a few times at night and there are several properties with damn great security lights on the gables. Completely wrecks your night vision.

Pity that headlights are not just limited to cars. Boats with headlights are quite simply out and out menaces to other navigators.

Same thro’ Brundall. Left Surlingham early hours to catch the tide at Yarmouth and triggered loads of security lights, plays hell with your night vision…

Staff didn’t feel safe walking to their cars !? In Horning ?  You’re kidding me. That’s tosh.

Agree that the BA and relevant bye-laws need to be brought into play, on this if it’s affecting the river, as well as other light intrusive situations on the river. We too have noticed some of the heavy lighting affecting our night vision through Horning, but also quite recently we’ve suffered bright lights right across the river at Coltishall common from  what I think was the last house,  on approach. If moored up on that first (end) spot it’s also very intrusive. Well it was when we were up there this summer..

Well, talking of bright lights, what about the light at Cox’s yard when moored at Paddy’s Lane???

Well lets ban everything then we will all be happy.   Where we live , every bungalow has security lights , mostly only come on when you are near the property thank goodness but when they do it is like Blackpool.   Please dont moan about the light at Paddy's Lane.  The one reason I like to moor there is because there is light at night.   I dont like the fact that the street lights go out over night.   Always had a light on at night.   On the boat we always have a battery night light on very low must to show the way if you have to get up in the night, which for me is several times.

However, I do sympathise with anyone on the river who comes across the guy , who for Christmas has been given a huge search light and decides on the very night you are travelling to 'try it out'.   They are a menace.  I cannot see why the property lights should go on with someone just tootling down the river.    No different than if you lived on a road.  You wouldnt want the darn thing on all night long - imagine your leccy bill.

I once sold a waterside property, the garden was full of lush plants. The next time I saw it, the garden had been block paved, and was covered by cctv from every angle.
