Light completely blocked out by tree branches

Reported via mobile in the Light blocked by vegetation category anonymously at 21:29, Monday 26 September 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

The street light on the corner by 44 Hawthorne avenue is completely blocked by tree branches and does not shine on path or road at night. This will become more of a problem as the earlier dark nights start to set in. The tree is situated in a house and needs it cut back. Please can you look into this as have the tree cut back so that the light can shine onto the road as it is supposed to.

  • Hi the reported street light obstructed by tree vegetation remains and whoever owns the tree has done nothing about it. There remains no light that shines on the area needed and it remains dark. Please can this be escalated.
