Street light issues - one very dim, the other covered with greenery

Reported in the Street lighting category anonymously at 15:41, Saturday 13 January 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

Two street lights in Conduit Lane, between the carpark at the doctors' surgery and Mill Street, need to be looked at. No. 3, by the bin, is very dim and doesn't give any useful light which means you can walk into somebody because you can't see them until you meet them. No. 4 is covered by branches of a tree or bush so one side doesn't illuminate the lane, exacerbating the problems of no. 3 being dim.

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.
