  • It is now 3rd February 2021 and there has been no reaction from the Council other than the reply above. We are almost a month on and the light is still inoperable. The Road remains in darkness. and potentially dangerous for pedestrians.

    Still open, via questionnaire

  • It is now 8 February and the residents of Rupert Way don't have an answer on a date the street light will be fixed. It is the only light in the street and consequently very dark and a definite hazard. Please update on date for fixing.

  • This has now been NOT WORKING for 3 and a half month. It was reported on 6th January 2021 and it is now 19th April 2021. Please advise WHEN it will be fixed. It is very dark in the cul-de-sac and unsafe!

  • Still no action from the Council on the only street light in the road. When will this get sorted. Does it have to take someone having an accident and being injured to jar the Council into action. Almost 4 months now. Seems like they are waiting for summer to save electricity.
