Back to all reports

No street lights at end of Brewery Passage and 4/5 of the Southampton Street car park lights are out. It is so dark you can barely find you car or walk safely on the pavement. This is not an ideal situation for people who work in the centre of Faringdon and leave in the dark at 5pm.

The lack of street lights makes walking to the car park after work in the dark dangerous as you cannot see where you are going and un-nerving if you are a single female.
