Street lights


Boddle

Recommended Posts

Sure there was a thread on this but can?t find it-


Any idea why Bassano Street looks like someone lighting a film set after dusk?? The street lamps are now so bright it looks like daylight. Thankfully we all sleep in rooms in the back of the house but must be awful for those with lamps right outside their window. We are going to have some very confused wildlife.


I appreciate it?s important for safety to have well lit streets but these seem a bit extreme.

Our latest councillor has said he's had problems with emails from here going into spam (think that is what he said) and also that he is very busy. The way to contact him apparently is by emailing him direct- presumably those emails don't go into spam. If you go to the Councillor thread he has his contact details under his name.

I live on Underhill road and have not been able to sleep in my bedroom since the new streetlights were fitted at the beginning of January. I sleep on my sons floor in the back of our house. I have complained to Southwark and I have written to my councillors and Helen Hayes. I?m still waiting for Southwark to respond. The argument made for the switchover is that the lights will reduce CO2 emissions which is true, but it is equally true that the light heads are angled incorrectly so as to emit excessive glare and light trespass, they are too bright turning night into day, they disrupt bird and insect behaviour, and they interfere with our own circadian rhythm. To preserve our wildlife and our right to night the council could replace the harsh white bulbs with warmer bulbs and significantly dim the lights between midnight and five AM which would protect everyone?s interests.

Our street already had shields fitted, but they disappeared when the new streetlights were fitted yesterday. Possibly not compatible with the new LED fittings?


A simpler solution would surely be to reduce the output of the lights with timers?

These LED streetlights emit dangerously high levels of radiation and can be adapted to transmit 5G. We are sadled with this simply because they are lower carbon emission - adopted by councils in response to climate change activism. Edited by rob7007

unless you ask for them to be switched off completely at night....

This is rubbish, and the reference to 5G makes me think it is part of a trolling mythmaking exercise. Why you think a low power source is capable of emitting 'high', indeed 'dangerously high' levels of radiation beats me. The 'lower carbon emission' is because they use less power, which makes them less 'powerful' - or rather power consuming - than sodium lights. The 'radiation' they emit is light, sort-of a necessary requirement for a street light.

    • Is your objection to the spelling of through, or to the whole phrase (which I think is useful)?
    • Might it be a good idea to contact the Royal Opera House, if Robin Lee appears to work there? He probably won't see a post on here?
    • Would recommend Hussein. He’s done a cracking job on three of our rooms and we’ve booked him to do two more. He’s polite, hard working and turns up on time. He also gave us some good advice about finishes and options. He communicates clearly, so you know what’s happening and he was competitively priced. Looking forward to him working his magic on our next two rooms. Thanks Hussein!! 
    • Crikey. Well as I was inside the house,  I only saw it through the glass in my front door, so probably it wasn't strictly "ball lightning" as such. It certainly wasn't moving about!  And if it struck Alleyn's, it can't have been in two places at once. But as I said, it "looked like" there was a huge ball of light outside in the road. I was very glad I wasn't standing outside, put it like that 😂 My partner heard the bang in Surrey Quays!
