  • Some of the hedging has been cut back to make it easier to walk along the footpath but the streetlight is still covered by the tree blocking out the light at night.

  • Hedge has been cut back to clear foot traffic. Streetlight still hidden but winters coming leaves falling so some light will illuminate the footpat.
