Lamp posts obscured by overgrown trees

Reported in the Street lighting category anonymously at 17:08, Monday 17 July 2017

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 2 minutes later

The cinder track that links Peachcroft Road to Charney Avenue is not overlooked by dwellings and is rather secluded. Consequently in autumn/winter months it is imperative the street lights shine onto the track for safety. Many of the street lights along this track are covered by overgrown trees - light 5 is particularly bad.

Thank you for contacting Oxfordshire County Council Street lighting, unfortunately we are currently only available to respond to emergency situations which may have an impact on the health and safety of members of the public, these will be dealt with within a 24 hour period.
Reported faults will continue to be registered on our management system and these will be tackled in coming months.

  • Many thanks for bringing this to our attention, I will raise column 6 with our highway team to have a look and rectify, column 5 unfortunately is blocked by a private tree so I will have to send out a letter to the resident to look at removing the problem area
