Lamp post in the middle of the footpath

Reported in the Street lighting category anonymously at 11:00, Tue 19 June 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 22 hours, 29 minutes later

As you pull in the orchard, there are 3 houses on the right hand side, after there are 2 parking spaces set back. That is where the customer parked. The lamp post is right in the middle of the pathway. This is creating an obstruction for pedestrian users, that would have to go around to avoid it.

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.

  • Thanks for the report and sorry for the inconvenience this has caused. There is a possibility that this is a private unit or a unit not yet adopted by us. I have attached a map showing the lighting we own in the area, to assist if you can locate the light in question we can look into what can be done, appreciate any help
