Very dim lighting- columns 3-15 Dean Road, Handforth.

Reported via desktop in the Light Out category anonymously at 20:36, Wednesday 20 October 2021

Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3075092.

Lighting is much dimmer here than up towards the Wilmslow Academy School further up the road. In fact, the lighting is dimmer than the small residential roads in the surrounding area which makes no sense as this is a main road. You can barely see a thing walking along the footpath at night. The LED lanterns on columns 3-15 Dean Road have just one small patch of light on the lantern. The model differs to street lights further up the road outside the Wilmslow Academy School which has much brighter LED's in place. However, the same model is used on lights on Hall Lane as you walk past St Benedict's school. These have two sections of light and this is a residential area. Surely a main road which is frequently used by pedestrians at night should have more lighting intensity than a residential street, not less! I think the same model needs using like lights further up the road. Would really appreciate if this ongoing issue could get resolved, reported earlier in the year and nothing has been done. Thank you.
