  • 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.

  • This street light came back on for a short time, but is now not operating at all. As you can see this has a safety Impact. I am a nurse so I leave very early for work and often return home after 10.30 pm. This street is poorly lit at the best of time and is a risk to the elderly people who,live in retirement bungalows in the road too.
