Overgrown Trees masking street lights

Reported in the Street lighting category by Kevin Wallis at 12:51, Thu 24 October 2019

Overgrown trees alongside the Southern Road Recreation Ground are obscuring the street lights, making it too dark in places for pedestrians to see where they are walking.

  • I forgot to add that, given there is sheltered accommodation for elderly people living opposite, this might make it difficult or worrying for them to go out in the evenings.

  • Without the leaves on the trees this is less of a problem, but come spring the branches need cutting back. Also, one of the lamps is very dull and does need some attention - the one nearest the Southern Road roundabout.
