Street light not working

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later
The street light up the alley way beside the school is not working at all. This makes the alley way used by residents of tackley to access the school and shop dangerous. The alleyway is now in total darkness.
Thank you for contacting Oxfordshire County Council Street lighting, unfortunately we are currently only available to respond to emergency situations which may have an impact on the health and safety of members of the public, these will be dealt with within a 24 hour period.
Reported faults will continue to be registered on our management system and these will be tackled in coming months.
Ref: 349134 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.
State changed to: Action scheduled

Thank you for your report, could you please confirm the unit number you are referring to as per the attached map. Where the pin has been dropped we do not have any street lighting units Oxfordshire County Council maintain/own. Thank you

Thank you for confirming, this unit is still on our managment system for attendance and we will attend as soon as possible. We do have a new contractor who is currently covering emergencies only, however they will be starting to clear the backlog of faults shortly. Kind regards
