Ref: 348649 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.

Please advise when these lights will be fixed. If work is grouped and fixed in one go (which I understand to save money) there are a number of street lights which have been broken in the area for a long amount of time (just look at your own map). Is it not time for these all to become a priority and be fixed.

Thank you for your report, unfortunately I am unable to provide a timescale at the moment, however we have recently awarded a new contractor and they will be attending all the outstanding works as soon as possible. I apologise I am unable to provide you with a further update at the current time.
