Street light not working in dark cul de sac

This street light does not work, despite repeated complaints. Bizarrely it is located in the back garden of 15 Truelocks Way. All other street lights on the Charlton Heights estate have been upgraded to LEDs. This has compounded the problem in our cul de sac, since the LED lights are highly directional and it is now pitch black at night here. Please sort this out.
