Light shines directly into our bedroom

Reported via desktop in the Street light not working category anonymously at 06:36, Saturday 22 January 2022

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

I had to choose “street light not working” from your lists but it is the opposite problem. The street lighting on Chapel Street has been upgraded and is now super bright. We are on the opposite side of the road from the lamppost outside no 61 and the light from shines into our bedroom windows and is so bright I can read in bed without extra lighting! It is also so bright that it wakes us up. Is it possible to fix a shade or baffle? Or reduce the wattage?
