fram, sorry but sometimes my posts are a bit too subtle, the point I was inferring is the people visiting the secluded areas of the NYMNP at night are not generally not there for the dark sky's in itself!!! but the officers of the NYMNP seem to be placing great weight to this particular feature of the special quality a of the NYMNP, it's a nonsense very very few people visit the NYMNP for this reason.
Indeed Sailorchief such was the noise emanating from all these dog walking dark sky loving people that it took me a while to realise that all this noise was the pain they were suffering was from them falling in all the bogs and swamps as they walk the moors in the pitch black.
So do I Sheps, particularly the Hole of Horcumb car park which is used a lot by lots with telecopes, especially on moonless nights. I try and switch my lights off asap to join them and wonder at it all...Strange that others choose to walk their dogs then too!
I must admit that the NYMNP's repeated emphasis on the most important and stunning feature of the park "dark sky's" is one area of paticular merit!!! I often travel over the moors at night, if you stop get out of your car (if you can find a parking space at that time of night that is, all the lay-bys and car parks are usually full) the moors are filled with thousands of people out strolling and viewing the spectacular vista of pitch black nothingness with the light of the respective towns in the background, in fact if you didn't know better you could be!!! well anywere in the country. Amazing.
The interesting thing about DCOs since their introduction for Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects about five years ago is that they all went to the full time frame initially as the process bedded in and to avert JR complaints of negligence by PINS. More recently some projects have had some time shaved off. This could be quicker as it is on existing port land and adds to similar facilities present. Perhaps take 3 months off so March 2016 is feasible.
Anyone can submit an RR but it must be relevant so in this case local port economy and wider national economic growth are both relevant. I will post a more complete list when RRs can be submitted so posters can add their own support to the DCO.
I have worked with Martin Kingston on a contentious biomass plant proposal and his work was crucial to gaining planning consent. He is by far the most intelligent man I have ever met and his ability to absorb information and process it to an advantage is phenomenal. It gives me great additional faith that the YP project will work out now knowing he is on board!
