  • Ref: 347404 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.

    State changed to: Action scheduled

  • This has still not been fixed, there are bollards at either end of this alley that cannot bee seen in the dark, there are a number of elderly people that use this alley and could be badly hurt if they walked into the bollards.

  • This has not been fixed yet. You stated above that priorities are attended within 24 hours. I have seen several people hurt themselves on the bollards that cannot be seen. Are accidental injury claims cheaper to settle than fixing the light?

  • Unfortunately this would not be classed as an emergency, however I have requested our contractor to attend as soon as possible

  • Unless this light has been repaired today (Monday 27th November) this street lighting remains not working as of using the pathway yesterday. As a visitor to the area I know the footpath and without lighting this is incredibly dangerous.

    The footpath is pitch black.

    Firstly the bollards at each end present the potential of serious injury. Having walked blindly into one this weekend I was fortunate it was a glancing blow that only caused me to stumble badly, fortunately keeping my balance (just) !

    Secondly, I appreciate this might be considered a low crime area, but as a lone female it is extremely disconcerting and worrisome that an assailant would easily be able to attack someone without any warning along this 30m stretch of path.!

    Clearly this light repair has been outstanding for some time. Please remidee as a matter of urgency before someone is seriously hurt. I find it hard to understand that this has not been treated as a urgent priority repair.

  • This is still not fixed. You stated on 6th November that you contacted a contractor to repair, can you please ask why the contractor has not been attended yet? Thank you

  • This is on our managment system for repair, I apologise this has not been attended to as yet. I have requested our new contractor prioritises this job so it should be attended to within the next few days.

  • We believe this issue was addressed but due to a technical error it hasn’t been updated on FixMyStreet. We now consider it fixed, but if the issue still exists please let us know by creating a new report on FixMyStreet:
