Lamp post

The lampost on the opposite pavement to my house shines straight into my ground floor extension where there is a bedroom. Could a shade be put on this lampost please? My house is Cherry Banks.

  • Amazing! Reported the problem on Friday and they had put a shade up by Tuesday. Excellent service - especially when you compare it with what my mother experienced in London, where it took a year and a half to get the council to put shades on their lights on the council block opposite her flat.

    State changed to: Fixed
