  • Ref: 348224 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

  • It is March now. The light is still not fixed by the new contractor. There have been an alarming high rate of burglaries in the area since October 2018 to date. It has been nearly 9 months since the light was out, and 4 months since the first report. Please please make this a priority now. Thank you
