Street light STILL out!!!!

Reported in the Street lighting category anonymously at 15:09, Fri 6 December 2013

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council 1 minute later

This street light is one of only half a dozen down the road and we were getting new ones but a few residents were against the news ones as this is a conservation area. Fine putting it on hold for this reason but the light outside The Forge hasn't worked for six month's. I made a phone call to the council to be told that the work was scheduled to start on 29th November, nothing! Another call on 2nd Dec was supposed to have been returned within 24 hours, no return call! Another call from me to be told that the council came out 5th Dec and apparently there is no electricity to this lamp but there is to the rest of them???? Now the work is scheduled for January!!!! Only last night a lady walking her dog walked into my bins as they have to go on the path for collection :( How long are we going to be fobbed off!!!! It is pitch black down the road as we have few lights as it is!!!!

  • This light doesn't seem to be on the list of priorities for the council! Only last week my husband was reversing his van up the drive and four people walked behind him as he was approaching our gateway and he almost hit two of them as it was pitch black! No point in him complaining as it won't get fixed any quicker! :(
