Dark Skies application submitted!

January 29, 2016

Our Ranger Dark-skies-Dan and his group of dedicated volunteers have spent the past three years mapping out the quality of night skies across the National Park. He’s also attended countless parish, town and county council meetings to develop policies that will help protect our skies.

All of this in preparation for our bid to get parts of the South Downs named as an International Dark Skies Reserve. You’ve played your part too. Thank you to everyone who backed our bid by signing up to our Dark Skies Pledge.

We are really excited to announce that the bid has now been submitted to the International Dark-Sky Association. To celebrate we asked Dan to explain a bit more about what he’s been doing and why it’s important.

Wish us luck!
