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.
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.
We will chase the developers about replacing the lamp column, thanks for the information.

The developers are getting a quotation together to place an order to provide and install a replacement unit of the same type as was recently installed further along Wallingford Street to the east.
