  • 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.

    State changed to: Investigating

  • Hi, the lights are inside the children’s playground on mantillas way / Cowley Road. I looked for a number on the lights but couldn’t see one. The are large lights with solar panels on top. If these are not responsibility of Oxfordshire county council, can you pass to oxford city council to action?

  • Contacted city (direct services) to report this, but still not fixed. Looks like nobody wants to take responsibility for this :-(
