Lampost at junction of Westlands and footpath near Marlfields School

Reported via desktop in the Flickering Light category anonymously at 17:15, Sun 5 November 2023

Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 5176915.

I chose flickering light but the problem isn't the bulb but the tree next to the lampost with leaves and branches that stop the light reaching the ground.

I reported it before and I can see you have trimmed off the branches that were actually touching the lamp. However there are many leafy branches between the lamp and the ground that obscure the light. The illumination of the ground is flickery if windy, or blocked if still.

Please trim the tree growth between the lamp and the ground so the light can do its job of illuminating the change between a road and path, and show the bollards clearly.

Currently it's still a hazard.
