Street lamp still broken

Reported in the Street lighting category by Natasha Pettit at 22:39, Sun 2 December 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

I have reported this broken lights three times now over the past 2 months and it is still broken. It is difficult to see my front door and my walk from my car to my house is extremely dark and quite unpleasant.

Please can this be fixed quickly?

  • 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.
