Bulb needs replacing

Reported in the Street lighting category anonymously at 16:29, Friday 12 October 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

This street light has not been working for over 6 weeks. There are several elderly residents living in this vicinity and this lack of street lighting is causing problems. There is also a bend in the road which isn’t easy for non residents to distinguish. Also a postal box where a lot of people park / wait or stop suddenly. The lack of light means residents cannot see who is outside their property before opening a main door. I can see this becoming even more of an issue as we approach Halloween.

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.
