Replacement LED street light in Hobbs road too bright and needs adjusting

Reported in the Street lighting category anonymously at 06:48, Wed 5 February 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 2 minutes later

Yesterday (4 Feb 20) a broken wall mounted sodium street light was replaced with a LED type floodlight in Hobbs road. The replacement light has been angled so the light spills into the rear of 3, 4 and 5 Hobbs road. As a result the rear bedrooms in all 3 properties are now too bright to sleep in. Adjusting the light to angle downwards so it doesn’t shine directly into the first floor at the rear of the houses would solve this problem.

  • Thank you for bringing this to our attention, unfortunately the unit(s) you are referring to are not owned, maintained or adopted by Oxfordshire County Council, these are private lights that would be the responsibility of the developer/landowner whom you would need to contact direct.

    Unfortunately we do not keep records of private units. Please accept our apologies as we cannot assist any further on this occasion.

    These are the lights we have I the road, please confirm is one of these is causing the problem and we can forward this on.

    Thank you occ

  • The developer has been contacted and they have stated that the road has been adopted under a S38 agreement. As such they argue have no responsibility for the street lights including these ones. Can you please double check and see if a management company is responsible for these lights?
