Street light shines directly into bedroom window

The street light outside 1a Downside is set to burn all night and shines directly into the upstairs bedroom window, disturbing sleep.

Is it possible to either add a deflector so that it doesn't shine towards the house, or to change the lighting up time so that it is off during sleeping hours. This might help with the Oxfordshire County Council's Carbon Action Plan too!

  • Hi Sorry in the delay, we can arrange to get the rear of the lantern bowl painted out so that the light shouldnt shine back towards 1a. We will raise this now for you
