The streetlight (S1) outside 3–5 Waterford Road, Witney OX28 1GD - IS NOT FIXED despite receiving an email yesterday to say it had been. My elderly mother, cannot see her path to her door. This problem was first reported on 13 September 2018, this is not acceptable.

  • The map you have added is not the correct area of Waterford Road. I think the faulty street light is labelled S1 - it sits outside the residences of 3 and 5 Waterford Road - please see pin drop on my image above
