  • Thank you for your report, to enable us to log the fault to the correct unit can you please advise using the attached map the street light number you are referring to. If the unit is not on the map this would not be owned/maintained by Oxfordshire County Council and would need to be reported to the developer/landowner direct. Unfortunately we do not keep records of private lights.

  • The unit is 005 however the lamp is to the north of the picture, not as currently within the picture. The unit shines into the property on the adjacent road, Queens Close.
