The light is working but doesn't provide enough light on the footpath. I reported this last week as a resident of Blagdon park fell over due to poor lighting and was attended to by your colleagues and they kindly changed the head on the street lamp, however it has not resolved the issue as the footpath is still very dark. is it possible to fit a double headed lamp as the street lamp light is facing in the wrong direction to provide light on this part of the footpath. Many thanks. Stewart.

  • We have carried out an inspection of this area and can confirm that we have asked our contractors to turn the existing lantern on column 016. Once the lantern is turned we trust this will provide a better spread of light along the footpath.

    We've closed this report but can add further comments here is needs be. If there are issues after the lantern has been turned then please log a new report.
