  • Many thanks for this report, it looks to be columns 6 and 7 alchester road which are affected. It looks like the trees/bushes blocking these are privately owned by the cottage next to them so we will be in contact to see if we can get these trimmed back being very wary of the overhead cables. We will send out a letter and see what can be done as we definitley want to keep this area lit correctly

  • The overgrowth has still not been cut back. Its now dark so much earlier, this needs to be done asap. Many thanks

  • Thank you for your report. We have assessed it and found that it does not currently meet the criteria for intervention, so will not be fixing at this time.
