  • Thank you for bringing this to our attention, unfortunately the unit(s) you are referring to are not owned or maintained by Oxfordshire County Council, these are private lights that would be the responsibility of the developer/landowner whom you would need to contact direct.

    Unfortunately we do not keep records of private units. Please accept our apologies as we cannot assist any further on this occasion.

  • Your map showing light position is totally wrong. The app does not work well on a mobile phone. The lamp is in Wychwood Close OX181DL which is your responsibility. Also it is dangerous as the live bare wires are exposed.

    State changed to: Open
