The light from street light 665400

Reported via mobile in the Street lighting category anonymously at 10:14, Fri 26 March 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

This street lamp lets in an awful lot of light into the bedrooms of the old post office that we cannot stop by using blinds/curtains etc. We would be grateful if a deflector could be fitted to reduce the light beaming into our rooms in the middle of the night.

  • This issue still doesn’t appear to have been resolved. The light down the street that has recently been fixed has a deflector (see picture above - darker, in the rain photo) but this one appears to still not have one - the light issue is still a problem.
