  • Ref: 339040 Thank you for your report; we have logged this as a fault on our management system. Our current policy is for our contractor to attend electrical & structural emergencies as a priority; these will be attended within a 24hr period. All other faults are logged on our management system, for efficiency, these are grouped by area and the date they were reported, and the contractor attends against a programmed of works based on this approach

  • This street light is still out of order. This pathway is used by a lot of people, children included and with dark nights upon us and growing crime in a Wantage, dark lanes become a scary place.

    It is so dark that the path just is not visible, let alone the hedgerows for people to hide in!
