Street Lamp not replaced when building redeveloped.

Wallingford Street, Wantage. When the former Blanshard's and James Heating building in Wallingford Street, Wantage was demolished for redevelopment there was a street lamp and CCTV camera outside the location. This location is now known as Monarch's Bow. My understanding was that one of the planning conditions (dating back to 2010?)was for the street light to be replaced on completion of the development. This has not been done and the development is now complete. Furthermore, the street lighting in Wallinford Street has recently been upgraded. However at night there is a dark area along this part of Wallingford Street. The attached photo from Google maps clearly shows the street light and CCTV before the redevelopment. Please investigate and advise on what action will be taken to rectify this situation. Thank you.
