Feedback to Public Consultation regarding Light Pollution

I sent the following to the Ministry for the Environment, Climate Change and Planning (Environment & Resources Authority and Planning Authority)


Public Consultation: Guidelines for the Reduction of Light Pollution in the Maltese Islands

With reference to the commendable initiative above, I am hereby appealing to the Environment & Resources Authority and the  Planning Authority to employ a Social Impact Assessment (SIA) process, which is in accordance with international standards for example those set by the International Association for Impact Assessment, which is accessible from this link:

In this regard, please refer to my correspondence dated 31 May 2019 to the PA regarding SIAs. To date, I have not been informed of any policy update in this regard.

A copy of my correspondence can be obtained from this link: 

Dr Michael Briguglio
