Street lighting not working

Reported in the Street lighting category anonymously at 20:38, Fri 2 November 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 2 minutes later

For about 4 weeks or so the light across the road from my house has been working on and off, the last few days at least 3 are not working properly they come on at dusk but by 8pm they go off, very dark and intimidating as all in close proximity.

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.
Reported faults will continue to be registered on our management system and these will be tackled in coming months.

  • Ref: 347647 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.
