  • Thank you for your report, to enable us to log the fault to the correct unit (we are unable to locate unit 23 in the area you have located on the map) 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.

  • This lamp is stiil not working and clearly marked 23. This is at a well used point for pedestrians to cross the A361. This now a very dark spot and is clearly a danger to pedestrians during hours of darkness.

We have passed this to our highway team regarding the amount of ivy around the unit and have requested this be removed before we can attempt to repair the light.
