Consultation launched on Bodmin Moor's Dark Sky Park bid

Bodmin Moor could become an International Dark Sky Park.

The area is being put forward because of its "exceptional night sky" and Cornwall Council is asking people for their views on proposals before bidding for the title.

The council, and Caradon Observatory are holding a month long consultation, and, if their bid is successful the title is comparable to World Heritage Site status.

The Area of Outstanding National Beauty Unit and the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) also support the proposed bid. If there is public support for the bid, the Council will submit it this summer.
