Street lights not lit, making is dangerous to walk on uneven pavement

Reported in the Street lighting category anonymously at 18:46, Thu 8 December 2016

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

Two consecutive street lights are not coming on at night, outside No.1 and No.3 Cadogan Park. This means a large stretch of pavement is unlit and as the pavement is not even it is dangerous.

  • Thank you for your report, these are logged as a fault on our management system. Currently the temporary policy is for our interim contractor to attend electrical & structural emergencies as a priority, these will be attended within a 24hr period. However, when and if additional resources plus materials are available the contractor has started to carry out repairs to the older outstanding faults these will be grouped by areas for efficiency.

    Individual parts will also need to be ordered on a number of faults as these are not standard items, unfortunately this will increase the time it takes that these units are not operational. We are currently in the process of negotiating with our interim contractor to provide additional resources to look at all faults to reduce the outstanding levels, however these will not have target timescales for repairs but we anticipate that they will be fixed as soon as possible.

    State changed to: Action scheduled

  • 6 February 2017 - the light is still not fixed. It is dangerous walking on foot along Cadogan Park in the dark, especially when it is icy underfoot.

  • Thank you for bringing this to our attention, unfortunately the unit(s) you are referring to are not owned or maintained by Oxfordshire County Council, these are private lights that would be the responsibility of the developer/landowner whom you would need to contact direct.
