The street light number 29 outside of 84 Elmhurst Road Shilton Park has no black tape on the side nearest the house as per light No1 on Tansy way which has. The light in question No 29 shines between the houses on Elmhurst directly into the rear of my property’s back garden no 21 Park View Lane. Would it be possible to place some black tape inside the cover to stop it shining into my back garden. A small thing I know but it is becoming very irritating. Many thanks for your help. Mr CM Cook 21 Park View Lane

  • A job has been raised to try and rear shield the lantern of lamp 29 Elmhurst Way to reduce the unwelcome backlight to the rear garden of house 21Park View Road but it is anticipated it will have limited effect.
