The street light near my house is very bright can it be shaded or moved?

If the street light is on the same side of the road as the property it may be possible to limit some of the light by installing a shield. If the street light is on the opposite side of the road then it is not normally possible to limit the light as it would affect the amount of light onto the road and pavement. 

Moving street lights is often difficult. Street lights are spaced to make sure the light shines evenly along the street to meet British Standards and moving a single street light can lead to uneven coverage of light. Moving a street light may also cause other problems and therefore we have to look at each request carefully before deciding to move a street light. If it is possible to move a street light then the person or company who has made the request is expected to pay the full cost of moving it.
