  • 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.

  • We've just past the 1st anniversary of me reporting it! Forgive the sarcasm but I'm thinking of having a party on the 2nd anniversary! Of course you'll all be invited but you may have to bring a torch to view the extensive finger buffet!

  • Around 11 months ago I was told it was a supply problem (ordinally reported winter 2016) since then I have sent numerous emails been visited by 2 guys with a cherry picker (twice) who changed the sensor and bulb (twice)! Just a bit concerned it's my council tax paying for this ineptitude!

  • Ref: 250223 Apologies for the delay, we have logged a new fault to this unit as it appears that there was no confirmation it to be unit 15. We also have no record of anyone attending unit 15 on our managment system so will get this attended to as soon as possible.
