  • Thank you for the report and sorry to hear that the lighting has caused issue, i will get our new contractors to assess at the earliest opportunity and see if we can fit something less powerful. Unfortunately due to manufacturers solely developing LED equipment its harder to find parts for older SOX equipment so we replace where possible. It also reduces our carbon footprint. We will do what we can to make this less intrusive and sorry again for the inconvenience caused

  • Thank you for the update and sorry again for the intrusive light this lamp is causing, we have asked our contractors to shield this by painting the bowl so the light shines on the alley only. This should stop the glare into the garden and the light looking as intense. Any further issues please do not hesitate to contact us
