  • 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.

  • OK - Checking on StreeetView it looks like it is not that the lights don't work. .The problem is trees shading the light that need a bit of a trim. The 2 streetlights are on Rymers Lane. Adjacent to Florence Park - near the railings right next to the park, but on Rymers Lane pavement. The problem is that the lamps are surrounded by trees at the edge of the park, so they are not fully shining on the road at the point where there are 2 traffic-calming pavements sticking out in the road. Sorry cannot get the lamp numbers as will not be going this way for a while.
