Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later
Street light outside No 6 permanently on since engineers played with it
Ref:00360413 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. 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

Still not fixed now 13 days Why have a 7 day lead time when it is obvious that this time can not be met

You said the same thing on 11th November and now again on 13th. Is this to be another 7 days?

Thank you for your report. Unfortunately, there has been a back log with the street lighting reports, which is causing a delay for our contractors to come out to inspect and repair, I have forward this report directly so we are able to chase this and make it a priority, I apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.
