Street light still not working (1 year now)

Reported via mobile in the Street light not working category by Dominic Watts at 00:15, Fri 4 November 2022

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3937672.

Light is not working at all. I originally reported in 21-Nov-2021 but still not rectified. Not having a working light here for over a year is unacceptable There was a replacement of a nearby electricity pole, so I cannot understand why this lamp wasn't repaired at the same time.

  • The Streetlighting Team will carry out an inspection and order a repair if required, this can take up to 20 working days.

  • Another 3 months has passed and still nothing. Not holding my breath that anything will ever be done. Doubt Buckinghamshire Council has even sent anybody to inspect it, so the 20 working days to fix is a complete irrelevance. Even if it is still "pending", It would be nice is BC would just communicate. But maybe this is asking too much

  • After 18 months and a gentle prod via email to Buckinghamshire council the street lamp was finally replaced with an energy efficient LED lamp

    State changed to: Fixed
