Street light on hawthorn walk not working

Reported in the Street lighting category by Andrea owen at 01:21, Mon 8 October 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

The street light on the walk way for houses 22-28 hawthorn walk is very dim therefore proving pretty useless. This street light was repaired last year yet it took at least 4 months to get it repaired and working. The walk way is used as access to peoples properties as well as a cut through for the school and shops and it is pitch black currently which is very dangerous, and it will only get worse when the clocks change. I’m having to use a torch to put my bin out or walk to the shops!

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.
Reported faults will continue to be registered on our management system and these will be tackled in coming months.
