Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

I have lost count of the times this light has failed. it is surrounded by trees and seemed to stop working when we had those high winds last week. It is a dark corner because of the trees so not looking forward to the winter without it!

  • Thank you for this report; unfortunately I cannot locate the street light in question: the position shown on the map is in Heron Shaw and there is no street light (or any trees) in the vicinity. Please can you let me know which road it is in, the adjacent property number, and if there is a number on the column what it is. Kind regards, Mike Ward Assistant Parish Clerk
