  • 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.

  • I reported many lights weren't working down this Street. You 'fixed' only one light and it now only turns on in the day and is off at night. The are other lights that don't turn on at all.

  • I contacted Oxford university who went to check the lamp post and certified it was council owned. The lamp was working for a couple of days and now has unfortunately stopped working again. The alley way is pitch black at night and feels very unsafe for students who live in the nearby castle mill. I hope you are able to fix the lamp- I am guessing it is more than a bulb issue. Many thanks!
