Women are not safe at night, no street lighting

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Women are not safe at night when passing by the overgrown tree in question (outside number 12 Park Rd), see attached picture. The tree canopy is so large it blocks out any chance of street lighting. Duty of care has been ignored for some time, safe passage for all please.

  • I have visited site and assessed the trees in their location. The trees present are
    on land not deemed to be part of the publicly maintained highway by OCC in our
    capacity as local highway authority.
