No lighting outside 3 Playfield Road

No lighting outside 3 Playfield Road. My housemate and I have fallen over several times coming back after work because we cannot see anything.

There is a light that is not working on the house but my landlord seems to think it belongs to the council.

  • Thank you for your report, we are unable to locate a unit on any of the buildings in Playfield Road. 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.

  • The map does not seem to include the area I am referring to. It is the house on the other side of 11 on that map. The light is attached to the house.

  • Thank you for your report, I don't believe the unit you are referring to is owned/maintained by Oxfordshire County Council as we do not have any in the vicinity attached to any houses. I have attached another map for your perusal
