Old Street lighting

I'm trying to find out when our street light will get replaced with the new LED down lights that have been fitted all around the village, we have one of the old range lights that lights up our bedroom and house like a Christmas tree can you let me know when it is likely to get replaced please the street light is on Lea rd outside No 11, we have lived here since 96 and it's always been there but iv'e noticed most have been replaced around the village, it would just be nice not to have it shining on our bedroom

  • As another long-term Sonning COmmon resident I totally support this very reasonable request:- 1) nobody wants lights of any sort shining into their home. 2) Accurately directed LEDs reduce light pollution and global warming. We value accurate direction of illumination. The limited amount of sideways scatter, and the limited glare from a distance, all help road safety, and pedestrian safety. We would prefer to see the stars, not street-lamp glare. The zero upward wastage is one step toward being able to see the stars properly again. The use of LEDs reduces global warming. Thank you.

  • The LED lanterns have been fitted where possible, the ones left are due to have the column replaced as well, I have put a job on to replace the lantern to LED type
