SUPPLY FAULT - Passed to District Network Operator (Energy Supplier)
When our street lighting contractor previously attended site it was confirmed that there was a fault with the electricity supply to that lights rather than within the lights themselves, this fault has been reported to the Local District Network Operator (LDNO) by ourselves.
In much the same way as a typical household, Oxfordshire County Council is responsible only for the street light, but not for the electrical infrastructure outside of its own asset, the cabling serving street lights is provided and maintained by the LDNO; these are outside of the local authority control and subject to a separate regulatory framework overseen by ofgem.
Oxfordshire County Council’s contractor is not permitted in any way to interfere with or try to repair electricity supply faults, as they would be in breach of the statutory safety regulations if they tried to do so.
Once the electricity supply company advises Oxfordshire County Council the fault is rectified we will confirm this within our regular inspection programme to ensure that the light as a whole is in working order.

This was first reported in November 2020 and the street remains unlit - is there a logistical reason so we may sympathise as we fall over !

"this fault has been reported to the Local District Network Operator (LDNO) by ourselves" Will you give them a reminder please. Our street is very very dark at night and it has gone on for far too long.

The problem remains…. No light and cannot see! I appreciate that you have staffing problems with covid etc. …. BUT. Communication is the name … tell us your difficulties so we can understand - this is basic political management - so demonstrate that you are thinking adults! please
