  • It is now 28 days since I first reported this malfunctioning street light. It is now a matter of considerable urgency since, aside from health and safety, it is also a serious matter of security for both properties, vehicles and pedestrians. Most of Salegate Lane is in darkness since there are only two lights. Could someone please advise when this is likely to be addressed.

  • Still no street light and no response to my messages - this is now almost two months and I have had to purchase a security light to compensate for this neglect. Neighbours and myself are asking "what we are paying £200 pm and excess in council tax for?"

  • It is now five months since street light was reported as not working. As I anticipated this is causing major safety and security issues. Last night a vehicle ran into our parked car which will now require repairs. With the nights drawing in this is only going to get worse. Could someone please have the professionalism or at least decency to advise on this status. If I hear nothing I will cancel my council tax standing order until the cost of vehicle repairs has been reached. Thank you without much hope of response.

  • Some months since we have had any street lighting. As I have been recently widowed my children are concerned about the security issues as it is pitch black oiutside and I have a side access. I understand my neighbour has been complaining for some time - no luck yet. What is happening to the four week promise? Our neighbourhood is becoming an unauthorised tip and magnet for drugs etc mainly due to the cover of blackness.

  • Sorry I neglected to fill in my last post - it must be catching. Streetlight outside my house no. 7 Salegate Lane.

  • PS I should add people have been using my side entrance (car port) as a lavatory at night.
