I reports the issue below some weeks ago. I have been sent notification today that the issue has been resolved. The householders, Mr and MRs Short advised me a few moments ago that the issue has most definitely NOT been fixed!

My original report was: Address - 12 The Oaks, Carterton I am submitting this complaint on behalf of Mr and Mrs Short in my capacity as District Councillor for this area? The attached photograph clearly demonstrates the unacceptable issue your lamp is causing. Nobody should sleep disturbed by the inappropriate and inconsiderate action of others! I would also question the positioning of lamppost 22 - Mr and Mrs Short advise that this lamppost is actually on their land. I take it the necessary consents are in place and that you at the appropriate rent? Here are details of the issue as described by Mr and Mrs Short. “Lamppost 4 shines into the main bedroom and makes a loud buzzing noise whenever it is on. Lamppost 22 is a much bigger issue. It was installed after we had moved in and is within our property boundary- we were never sure as to why as the street was already very well lit. As you will hopefully see from the attached pictures, it is touchable from the bedroom and is genuinely as close to our house as it can be. We really need something to change as the light that shines in is ridiculous- can the lamp be switched off or the light be directed out of the bedroom?” Unsuitable? Get updates Share Problem
