Poor lighting following replacement head unit

Reported in the Street lighting category anonymously at 09:55, Fri 24 July 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Lamp No.4 had its orange head replaced a few weeks ago. The replacement LED unit is so dim, it needs replacing with a higher lumen value or an extra lamp post installed as the the current light does not even reach house nos 8,9. Most residents are in their 70's/80's so good lighting helps prevent falls/trips. With current light it's a burglars dream.

  • Lamp no3 has since been replaced by one of these LED lights. The street is now so dim in places I won't go out at night. Either install a brighter unit or install extra lamp posts.
