Hi team, Hope you're all well. Apologies if this has gone through to the wrong department, but I wondered if you wouldn't mind redirecting my query if so. I've been emailing with John Wiltshire at the council since last year about the possibility of moving the streetlight that sits in the middle of our driveway at 66 Station Road, Amersham. He'd been really helpful, and I was hoping to get an update on whether the streetlight has had the inspection it's due this year yet. If it needs replacing, I was wondering whether there would be an option to move its location to the new one recommended by John, at the border between our property and number 64, with us covering the additional cost for the move. I believe John and team have recently moved department - I got an automated reply to my last email. Would anyone else be able to get back to me on the above? Happy to send you my previous correspondence with John if that's useful. Thanks and all the best, Jo Caulkett (owner, 66 Station Road)
The Street Lighting Team will carry out an inspection and order a repair if required, this can take up to 20 working days; however, due to the exceptionally high volume of reports currently being received, it may at present take longer than usual to complete this initial assessment.
Once the issue has been investigated, the team will order any necessary repair.
