  • 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.

  • There is no number on the street light. But I don't know who the developer is either. Surely it's your responsibility and that is what we pay council tax for? (Aswell as many other things) how would they not be maintained by yourselves? Surely by now these roads should have all been adopted by you? And therefore you should be able to come and sort this out?
