Street lamp not working

Hello The street lamp opposite 4-6 Tuckers Road, Faringdon (SN7 7YG) has stopped working or the bulb has failed. I have noticed that your current street lamp bulb replacements are very bright white units as opposed to the original orange, the existing lamp posts and lens position are not designed for such bright white bulbs and as a result will produce an intense white light directly into the bedrooms of the three houses opposite. The replacement must be either a down lighter or some additional blanking of the lens must be undertaken to prevent unwanted light pollution. Thanks.
