Serious personal safety issue

Reported in the Street lighting category anonymously at 13:02, Mon 21 January 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 3 minutes later

Lighting to Car Park off of Union Street behind East Oxford Primary School is not working, the car park is in darkness and female students living in accommodation at the rear of the car park are at potential risk from assault or intimidation from drug users/sellers who congregate in the car park. This problem must be attended to as a matter of urgency. Problems with this lighting have been identified for over a year.

  • Many thanks for report, unfortunately if this is the lighting that leads to the Astro turf , the lighting is owned by Oxford City Council, Oxfordshire County Council own the lighting on the adopted highway but sadly we arent the owner of the assets in this car park. Any lighting out on Union Street itself would be ownership of OCC. Sorry we cannot assist further and appreciate the concerns. Oxford City Council will be able to advise on the repair, contact
