Unsafe, leaning street light with based protruding

Reported in the Street lighting category anonymously at 11:40, Thu 1 October 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The street light - number 100/12 - at the end on my driveway is leaning and the concrete base is protruding. The cover housing the electrics is also loose. The light sits on the deeds as being on our 'land' and is preventing us from having our driveway resurfaced. The other concern is that there are young children living in our street and the light staying how it is could cause harm.

  • The issue is still not resolved. The light has gotten worse and is leaning more with the base raised out of the ground making it increasingly dangerous
