Street light on Newland Drive had their bulbs changed a few months ago - they are so ridiculously bright now that they shine into every window on the rear of my house and is extremely annoying.

New street lighting is so bright it comes into my house, it needs some kind of shield on it to deflect it

  • Many thanks for your enquiry and hope you are keeping safe and well. The streets along Newland Drive have been changed and upgraded to LED lights due to the increase number of vehicles and pedestrian movements with the Wellington Gate development (Grove Airfield). Would it be possible to let me know the street light number which is causing the nuisance (please see attached plan) and I will ask The Roads Agreement team to speak to the developer to see if we can tilt the lantern down or fit a shield as the street lights are currently their responsibility. Kindest regards Dave
