  • It has now been a month. There are no footpaths where the light is out. The cars turn into the road, it is very dark and an accident waiting to happen. It is very dangerous. I would take a photo but it is pitch dark.

    Still open, via questionnaire

  • I am Cllr Max Thompson, VoWH. I went to look at this light earlier today. The light (13) has been out since before Xmas. It is extremely dangerous as there is no street lighting on this close at all and there are car parks in complete darkness that residents are unable to use - meaning there is more parking on the main road. This should be a matter of priority for Oxford City Council, especially in light of recent burglaries in the area. I attach a photos of the light and of the car park that is in complete darkness.
