No streetlights on Old School Lane, or in the area. Appear to have all stopped working from the 22nd March. It’s pitch black, next to a school so not safe for pupils on dark mornings.

  • Thank you for your report, we have requested our contractor attend and check supply to the units within a 24hr period. If there is found to be a supply fault, unfortunately any power failure due to cable/supply fault is outside the control of Oxfordshire County Council and has to be dealt with by the local electricity supply company, to whom this has been reported. These faults may take some time to repair.

    Oxfordshire County Council’s contractor is not permitted in any way to interfere with or try to repair electricity supply faults, as they would be in breach of the statutory safety regulations if they tried to do so
