Street light in Addison Crescent, no number visible. 6th report.

Reported in the Street lighting category by Heather Smith at 12:38, Fri 31 March 2017

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 2 minutes later

As you will see, this light has been reported 6 times over the last year. Bulb is replaced and blows after 2 or 3 days. Recently on a Sunday morning I confronted the contractor who was fitting yet another bulb. He admitted that it was an internal problem that needed a new part. He didn't have the part. Why then waste another bulb?? He would be back on Monday. That was about 1 month ago, THE LIGHT IS NOT FIXED!! This street area is very dark and hazardous to people walking through for a variety of reasons. I am really appalled at the fact that a seemingly simple task is repeatedly neglected, especially as the COUNCIL TAX HAS RISEN BY £200 THIS YEAR!! Will you please rectify this problem once and for all. ? Thank you, Mrs. H Smith.
