New Light Too Bright

Reported via desktop in the Street lighting category anonymously at 09:30, Wednesday 7 July 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

This may seem like a very silly request but the street light was replaced on the 6th July with an extremely bright light. We have blackout curtains in the front rooms but the light is so bright it comes straight through. this was never an issue with any previous lights. Please can you look at getting this changed. Many thanks

    Still No update on the extremely bad light that’s been put it opposite our house. I’ve provided pictures to show how much light is being projected onto our house daily. Please can this be looked at as soon as possibly. Many thanks

  • Apologies..this should have been dealt with already. i have instructed our contractors to fit a lower output lantern, and to fit shields..hopefully within 7 days.
