Street lamp not working for months!

Reported via mobile in the Street lighting category anonymously at 23:32, Tue 1 June 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

This street lamp has not worked since December 2020. Myself & my family are sick of having to walk into our house in complete darkness. We do not know if someone is watching us / waiting for us behind our bins etc, it is extremely daunting! The street lamp is outside my house, by the light brown fence. I’ve contacted the council multiple times to try and get it fixed but no help! What incident has to occur for it to finally be fixed!

  • Street lights numbers 6 & 9 were reported back in February 2021 and have been updated several times since but STILL have NOT been fixed. These lights SHOULD illuminate dark pathways at night but as they are not working present a safety risk. The fact they have not been rectified is unacceptable. PLEASE repair URGENTLY.

  • As of this date the street light numbers 6 & 9 to the pathways to the rear of 14 Lincoln Close have STILL not been repaired. These lights have been reported numerous times dating back to December 2020. This is TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE, as they currently present a serious health & safety risk. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE rectify URGENTLY.
