Alleyway street light not working

Reported in the Street lighting category anonymously at 16:53, Thu 2 March 2017

This has been reported multiple times to Waltham Forrest Council. Streetlight no. 5 in the alleyway between Whitehall Gardens and Long Deacon Rd is not working and hasn't been working since just after the new year. Despite repeated requests online and phone calls, it still isn't fixed and we are now in March. Because its an alleyway, it gets pitch black at night if one of the lights are out, which makes it feel very unsafe when returning from work.

  • After one day of operation, this light is now no longer working. The Waltham Forest portal is not working properly- keep getting an error message or request bounces so I can't log the problem on their website.
