  • 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.

  • These are not private lights but street lights that are Council maintained. I do not have the numbers. Do you want me to go and get them? Are they easy to find?

  • The unit numbers will be 3/4 way up the column or alternatively the unit numbers are on the map provided we just require the unit numbers to enable us to log them as a fault. Thank you

  • These lights are still not working. The number is 007 on Littlegate Street beside St Ebbe's church garden and also 007 attached to Minox clothes store ( 14-15 St Ebbes Street)

  • Thank you for your report, these units are all part of the new Westgate development and would need to be reported to the developer direct. they are not adopted/owned/maintained by Oxfordshire County Council and unfortunately we do not hold records of private lights. Sorry we cannot assist further on this occassion.

  • Here are the street lights which are not fully working. These lights are not new but have been on these locations years. I find it hard to believe they are the responsibility of Westgate.

    Many thanks.
