Brecon Beacons International Dark Sky Reserve, have your say

The Brecon Beacons National Park is presently preparing its management plan for the coming 5 years. There is a consultation process underway that aims to identify the issues that are important to those that live, work or play in the park. The Brecon Beacons is a designated International Dark Sky Reserve. This designation was won and is maintained by the efforts mostly of volunteers who believe that protection of the dark skies should be included in the Park’s 5 year plan; which it currently is not. Protection of the darkness is not just a benefit to stargazers it is crucial for the conservation of wildlife and whole ecosystems. Light can be as important as an environmental pollutant as much as noise, chemicals or other waste materials. If you agree that protection of night time darkness should be included in the plan add your voice to the consultation. Simply send an email before 24th May 2021 to:


and simply say what you value about the dark skies of the Beacons. Please use the phrase “Be The Change “ in the subject line. The more people that respond the more likely it is that the plan will include protection of the night sky.
