The bulb has been replaced but the brightness is very bright? Is this the permanent bulb being used as the light is lighting up the front room! It’s not the same colour bulb as the rest of the street? I’d expect to see this used in car parks but not street lights?

Light brightness? Bulb used would be appropriate for a car par or train station but not a street lamp?

  • Thank you for the report. The lamp used is a temporary solution as more of components and lamps for the exisitng fittings are becoming obsolete with manufacturers now focusing on LED products. We can confirm that this has a lower energy output. There will be an LED roll out but we can look to try and shield this unit to stop any intrusive light to your property
