There has been a Street lamp which has fallen onto the bin/bike store roof at the rear of Phoenix Court in Thame. continued weight of it plus plant growth which is constantly increasing is damaging and will continue to damage the building. In addition its absence on the road is potentially dangerous as the road is not being lit adequately on what is a difficult corner. This is not a duplicate. Please attend and fix this issue as its been on going since August

  • Many thanks for the report, the lighting column has been removed from the bin store and we certainly appreciate the concern with the lack of light here so apologies for the inconvenience. We are currently waiting fr the allowance of a bridge closure to ensure safety to install. Sorry again for the delay here and that the unit was left in the way it was.
