New streetlight way too bright

Reported via Android in the Street lighting category anonymously at 22:54, Sunday 2 February 2020

Sent to Brighton and Hove City Council less than a minute later

Please can the newly installed streetlight outside 3 whippingham road be reviewed. The new LED lamp is a good meter higher than the one it replaced and this one appears better suited to lighting an A road than a residential street as it has no cowling on it. The resulting flood of light is overpowering to look at and is adversely lighting up the houses around it.

Thank you

  • Sadly the new Lower power lighting is to powerful and disruptive to wildlife too . Birds singing in our street now due to two new Lower power BRIGHT lights this is daft because they illuminating the road ... WHY the need to light up a road ?
