Blocked street light

Reported via iOS in the Street Lighting and Road Signs category anonymously at 19:47, Thursday 7 October 2021

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

Again this tree is blocking the light to our houses which as all surrounding residents are elderly this is very worrying. If anyone were to go down their pathways they would not be able to see who it is. Can we please ask that this tree be trimmed back considerably so it can do its job properly. Every year we have the same issue and we need something done again !!!

  • Because the leaves have now come of the tree no action was taken by contractors. However at night the light is still blocked out by the branches of the tree. Now is the time to give it a good cut back. The light should have never been moved by the tree so we have this issue every year and no action is done so vulnerable people are left in darkness
