The street light outside number 21/23 is too bright

The street light that seems to have been replaced outside our house has been replaced with a seriously bright LED bulb and it is disrupting my sleep terribly. Please find photo attached of the brightness that this new bulb is emitting into my bedroom with all the lights off in my room. This needs to be dimmed as a matter of urgency.

  • I am now having to put towels up against the window so that I can sleep to try and block some this horrific light. I might add that there was nothing wrong with the previous light that was there and I am confused as to why we never received a notification that this work was taking place? Can this please be resolved as a matter of urgency!

  • Having looked at the rest of the street lamps down this road, it would appear that this lamp is the incorrect lamp that has been fitted - it’s much brighter and it’s bigger. I am very unimpressed and would urge this to be sorted out and reverted back to the previous bulb/lamps as a matter of urgency as I cannot sleep in these conditions. Thank you
