Light pollution from new street lamp bulb

Reported via desktop in the Street lighting category anonymously at 18:06, Thu 5 November 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The street light bulb on the west side of the A338 near the turning into Main Street has recently been replaced with an overly bright orange bulb which is causing severe light pollution to the neighboring properties! Please can this lamp be fitted with a less bright soft white bulb (as previously fitted) and in turn reduce light pollution.
