Large number of street lights out Main Street

Reported in the Street lighting category anonymously at 10:15, Friday 11 January 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later

There are a large number of street lights out on Main Street in Grove between Cane Lane and Laurel Crescent. At night this area is now becoming very dangerous to pedestrians crossing both Cane Lane and the main road as you cannot see them. My elderly neighbour will now not use the bus stop in this area in the late afternoon as they feel unsafe in the darkness.

  • 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.
