  • Thank you for your report, we have requested our contractor attend within 24 hours to make safe. We will therefore close this fix my street report as fixed. 346136

  • When our street lighting contractor (Amey Street Lighting) attended the site it was confirmed that it was a fault with the electricity supply to that lights rather than within the lights themselves, this fault has been reported to the Local District Network Operator (LDNO) by ourselves.

    In much the same way as a typical household, Oxfordshire County Council is responsible only for the street light, but not for the electrical infrastructure outside of its own asset, the cabling serving street lights is provided and maintained by the LDNO, which for this region is Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN). These are outside of the local authority control and subject to a separate regulatory framework overseen by ofgem.

    Any power failure due to cable/supply fault is outside the control of Oxfordshire County Council and must be dealt with by the local electricity supply company and 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.

    Once the electricity supply company advises Oxfordshire County Council the fault is rectified we will confirm this within our regular inspection programme to ensure that the light as a whole is in working order.

  • The lights were fixed, but have now all failed again and nobody has been working on them for a long period of time now, the first 17 lamps approaching the landfill site are not working and only about the last 4 on the roundabout are working
