Street light 7 out

Reported anonymously at 22:25, Saturday 18 September 2021

The street light is continually flickering red as of this evening. This light is right in front of my house, and the old SOX light already was extremely bright, strongly illuminating my bedroom at night. I find the replacement LEDs to be much brighter and harsher than the SOX lights, so am concerned about the impact of having this light replaced. Please could I ask that a shield is fitted to the new light fitting, at least to the rear and preferably the south side (facing the fields) too as this will help to cut light entering my windows. I see from the catalogues of suppliers such as ASD Lighting that their range includes such light shields. I'm sure it makes sense to fit this at the same time as the new LED fitting, as if I have to complain later (e.g. to my councillor), it'll mean sending a second crew out which surely must cost more? If it could also be the lowest luminosity fitting possible, that would also be appreciated by my neighbours. This light is not on the actual road, but just on a footpath that leads to the unlit public right of way along the fields, so main highway brightness is not needed. Thank you in advance for your understanding!
