As you leave Prescott Close there is a streetlight marked number 1 which has an access cover that not covering the electric elements and thus poses a health and safety concerns to the general public and especially children.

  • Ref:00358231 Thank you for your report, OCC are now responding to out of lights within the contracted timescales of attending site within 7 days for repairs. For emergencies the timescale will be shorter and a team will go on site as soon as possible. If there is a cable fault this will be passed to the Electricity company to repair and will take longer, it will depend on the resources which the District Service Operator has. Thank you
