Street light directly outside bedroom window causing too much light pollution

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later
The street light has been in place the entire time I’ve lived here for the past 4 years and it’s been unbearable, causing a lack of sleep due to the bedroom being flooded by unnatural orange light despite a blackout blind and trying various window fixtures. Please move the street light to a different location that isn’t causing unacceptable light position into residents bedroom windows.

Sorry to hear of this issue , a fault has been raised with our contractors to see if the rear of the lantern can be shielded to block the glare going back , apologies again for the inconvenience caused

Thank you for contacting us over this concern. We will consider this request along with many others later this financial year. However, this will be subject to there being no conflicting works and sufficient funds.

Hi, I am confused. Initially you said you have contacted a contractor to add a shield to this light and apologised first the clear issue this is causing. Now you are saying this won’t be considered later in the financial year and subject to funds. This is an urgent issue that needs fixing that is causing unacceptable levels of light pollution for residents. Please respond and confirm this will address urgently.
