Thank you for your enquiry. The landowner has been contacted and requested to cut back overhanging vegetation within the next 14 days. A re-visit will then be undertaken.

The tree next to the Council street lamp has been cut on one side (only). However, there is a horse chestnut tree nearer the station forecourt that is obstructing the light from the blue lampost (LED daylight lamp) and this needs to be pruned so one can walk from the station at night with some light!

Although the leaves are now falling, both lamps are still obstructed and light is reduced. this is the darkest time of the year.

January 2020 and both trees have still not not been cut back around the two separate lamp posts. This is the time of year for such action-before the buds begin for next year's leaves, which will then block the light all over again!
