Light spill / light pollution from the street lighting

Reported via desktop in the Other Lighting Issue category anonymously at 12:01, Wednesday 28 February 2024 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5643754.

Towering above properties & within feet of the housing these street lights are causing light spill which is still unmitigated sufficiently enough by curtains & or blinds on windows. As seen in the photographs which were taken without the aid of a flash . The street is also very brightly lit . This problem is worse since new white light lamps have been fitted .
