HAVING read the article 'Lights out for soccer stardom' I am mystified. It states that the application by Nailsea United Football Club to put up floodlights has been refused on the grounds that 'it would have a detrimental effect on the neighbours due to light and noise pollution'.Last month, despite strong protests from nearby residents, planning permission was granted for an all-weather pitch to be sited in Nailsea School, very close to residents of Ash Hayes Drive and Mizzymead Road. This will have floodlights and the hours of permitted use are: Monday to Friday 8.30-8pm; Saturday 8.30am-6pm; Sunday 9am-1.30pm.Will it not be the case that this will have detrimental effect on these residents, or will we be told it is a different type of light and a different type of noise?I should like to know what is the difference?NAME AND ADDRESS SUPPLIED
