  • Ref:00361777 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.

    There was a fault with the electrical supply earlier this year which appears to have been fixed in March. 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

  • These lights are still not working and make this walk very unsafe, especially with pushchair and small children. Nothing has been done to resolve in over a year.

  • Good afternoon,

    Due to the fault being caused by a cable fault, it has delayed the contractors to come out. I will forward this on to see if we can chase it and come out as soon as possible.

    Thank you

  • Lights still NOT working. My son even slipped over under the bridge a couple of weeks ago as we didn’t see a slippy patch when going for a late afternoon walk around dusk. Perfectly avoidable had the street lights been working!

  • Some of the lights have been fixed now! Thank you. But the light under the bridge is still not working from what I have observed. It have been off when other lights have been on. I don’t know if it is on a timer instead of sensor due to its location.

  • We believe this issue was addressed but due to a technical error it hasn't been updated on FixMyStreet. We now consider it fixed, but if the issue still exists please let us know by creating a new report on FixMyStreet:
