Outside 61 Chapel Street

Reported in the Street light dim category anonymously at 12:51, Thu 20 February 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

I had to choose "street light dim" from your lists but it is the opposite problem. The street lighting on Chapel Street has been upgraded and is now super bright. The light from this lamppost shines into our bedroom windows and is so bright I can read in bed without extra lighting! It is also so bright that it wakes us up. Is it possible to fix a shade or baffle? Or reduce the wattage?
