  • Thank you for your report, to enable us to log the fault to the correct unit can you please advise using the attached map the street light number you are referring to. If the unit is not on the map this would not be owned/maintained by Oxfordshire County Council and would need to be reported to the developer/landowner direct. Unfortunately we do not keep records of private lights.

  • I walk under these at 6.30 in the morning and 5.30 at night walking a dog. It is dark and I am unable to see the numbers but did count at least 10 street lights out last night, all in a row, from Ottery Way to Penpont Water. They are on the highway so are the responsibility of OCC.

  • Still no street lighting all the way up to All Saints' School. Dangerous in the winter months.

  • Ice conditions its very dangerous to slip or even slip into road, cyclists cant see pedestrians and when kids back at school walking in darkness is accident waiting to happen.

  • 1 bollard on speed hump now left after 3 knocked down by junction being completely dark in this area, could have been kids as this is on a school road, has been reported and lights out for several months

  • I first reported this problem on 22 November and the street lights have not been fixed. This is very dangerous, we have had a number of foggy mornings and evenings and the crossing at the end of this road (which is in darkness because of the lights not working) is very dangerous; you cannot see people crossing the road. Please advise when you will be fixing this problem.

  • Stretch of road next to the school that had the lead pinched in darkness? Not a good deterent, in fact probably helped. Also the bollards on crossing now been knocked over in the darkness and is there actually a lamppost missing where there was tyres marks up the grass bank
