Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Street light number 17, works for a while, then goes off random times tonight 5 Dec 21. Came on at 4.50pm then turned off at 5.15pm. And only street lamp in alley way, so pitch black. So not nice if you need to walk to put bins out.

  • Yesterday 31st Dec, the street light number 17, came on at 5.50pm then went off at 12.20am. I did see an engineer arrive just before Christmas, he went up the ladder opened the top of the light. Looked in then closed top of light. Then came down ladder, I heard him chatting then he left. Street light still works intermittedly. Please can it be properly repaired as pitch black in alley way. This has been on going for a couple of months now.

  • Ref: 00395102 . Have reported this street lamp, on and off now, for at 4 months now.

    Tonight at 5.20pm, the street lamp number 17 has failed to come on. I will also ring Council tomorrow to see why this only street lamp in this Alley is still not functioning. The street lamp must be fixed. As our Alleyway in in complete darkness, and also people use their back gates to access their homes.

  • Ref: 00395102 . Street light number 17, worked for a little while, but tonight came on at 5.15pm, at 6.10pm. The street light has now gone out again see photo attached. I have reported this street lamp for months now. I think it may need replacing as so unreliable, and is the only lamp that is in the alley. Please can this problem light get repaired once and for all. Many thanks
