  • The lamp attached to 6 Witney Street was working at 7:30am Monday 12th whereas it wasn't working on Saturday night - perhaps if it has a time clock it is wrongly set?

  • Thank you for your report, it is 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

  • Witney St. is a NO ENTRY off the High st. BUT the No Right Turn Sign is beyond the turning on the downhill side . This is mad as it encourages numerous drivers to drive straight into the street . This No Right Turn sign should be above the Sheep St junction on the left handside of the main road .
