Pesky Street Lamp

Moved into our house a month ago and just before we did the council had new street lamps installed. Annoyingly, one is located right outside our house and the light streams directly into our lounge and main bedroom. I spoke to the contractor and council and they agree to out a barrier up.
Just got home from holiday and notice it has been installed, but it makes no differnce at all as it's tiny and only blocks the light directly behind it, not at an angle.
Anyone know what the next step is? Do they have to stop light pollution?

Thanks

write to the council, they are quite used to this problem and make an allowance if the budget. Explain the position. Letters are not so easy to forget or misinterpret as phone calls or conversations.

Usually, when street lights are being installed or altered, they maildrop all the residents in advance so you have a contact.

No advice to offer but I can sympathise. A new belisha beacon was installed on thw road that ran at right angles to our old house and the constant nocturnal flashing drove us nuts. We could even see it through blackout curtains.
We did eventually get used to it.
Advice from pigletjohn above sounds good.
