  • Dear Resident. It was never agreed that this would switch-off at 1am but that it would dim, which was what was ordered and according to the contractors report back was fitted on 27/2/2019. Additionally in Novemebr 2017 a large front shield was fitted to try to reduce the light towards your house. This light is a at a sharp bend in the street and on consulting the Parish Council at the time they confirmed that it shouldn't be switched off but that dimming was acceptable. There has been an all night light at this location for many years. Having shielded and dimmed the unit we would suggest perhaps thicker/lined curtains might help to reduce further the light.
