  • Thank you for your report, to enable us to log the fault to the correct unit 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.

  • Lamps 4,5 and 7 in Waterford Lane are not lit.

    I have already indicated where on the map (initial report) and these are not private street lamps, but Council lamps.

    There is another on Park View Road but that's not affecting me. I think you'll agree these photos show an unacceptable level of darkness for a residential estate.

  • Ref: 347002 Thank you for your report; we have logged this as a fault on our management system. Our current policy is for our contractor to attend electrical & structural emergencies as a priority; these will be attended within a 24hr period. All other faults are logged on our management system, for efficiency, these are grouped by area and the date they were reported, and the contractor attends against a programmed of works based on this approach.
