  • Not sure if anyone has been out to it, but it's still not working properly. It'll occasionally switch on and then strobe for a few minutes, but then it's off for the rest of the night. Seven working days have since passed since the report was filed and its still faulty, making the whole area incredibly dark.

  • Thank you for the update, who is responsible for cutting the hedge back? Have they been informed and has a deadline been set to facilitate the cutting of the hedge so that the light can be repaired?

  • Resident is responsible i think..tree team usually attend, and if it is resident, they post a cutting notice for remedy within 30 days.

  • Is there any further update on this? The streetlight has failed completely and there is no evidence of the resident cutting back the bushes to allow access. The path and road are extremely dark, making it hazardous for all. The path is used by residents, commuters and children travelling to the local primary and secondary schools. There is little light from the surrounding properties to the footpath.
