  • Thank you for bringing this to our attention, unfortunately the unit(s) you are referring to are not owned, maintained or adopted by Oxfordshire County Council, these are private lights that would be the responsibility of the developer/landowner whom you would need to contact direct.

    Unfortunately we do not keep records of private units. Please accept our apologies as we cannot assist any further on this occasion.

  • We have contacted owner of street light - Amey, who will rectify shortly.

  • Thank you OCC. This, along with the numerous unservicable Street light along Clay lane, are still awaiting repair after informing RAF Benson (via Amey and RAF Benson Hard FM), some 2 years ago, and frequent reminders. This is after your very helpful reply to my original message, where you informed me of the MoU between OCC and RAF Benson.

  • This lamp post is still in the same 'horizontal' position as it was when reported in August 2019 above. Still no repair by RAF Benson Hard FM. When asked, they say theyre waiting until a Crash Barrier, Road Deviation signs and traffic calming are placed on the OCC maintained road, after yet another crash on this corner on Beggerbush Hill and just a few days ago, a near miss. Maybe also if the drainage was ckeared and maintained too, it might just help on the 'slippy road' for even the most cautious drivers.
