Tree obscuring street light

Reported via mobile in the Public Trees category anonymously at 01:11, Wednesday 18 May 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

There is a tree outside no 48/50 which is completely blocking the streetlight making the road very dark, this tree has been a problem for years with bt phone cables to neighbouring houses getting caught in the branches. Since the new LED lights have been fitted this area of road is more or less in complete darkness due to the size of the tree planted right next to it. It makes the streetlight obsolete due to its pointless location. Either the tree needs to be removed or the streetlight column moved. Either way, this is dangerous for pedestrians walking along the road and due to the poor lighting makes is difficult for people also driving due to the poor visibility.
