  • Thank you for bringing this to our attention, unfortunately the unit(s) you are referring to are not owned or maintained by Oxfordshire County Council, these are private lights that would be the responsibility of the developer/landowner whom you would need to contact direct.

    Unfortunately we do not keep records of private units. Please accept our apologies as we cannot assist any further on this occasion.

    State changed to: not the council's responsibility

  • The lights are on a public highway. They are not part of the Pioneer Square Development they are on the opposite side of Manorsfield Road. If they are not the responsibility of OCC - who is responsible for their maintenance, I don't think these lights would be the responsibility of Pioneer Square?

  • 23/11/18 - lights still not working. These lights do appear to be the responsibility of OCC and have not been working for some time. Lights 1,3,5,7,8 in nearby B4100 st Johns street also remain out of action.

  • 4/12/18 - no update. How is a member of the public supposed to find out who owns street lights on a public highway? All of the lights remain out of action.
