Column 12

Reported via iOS in the Street light not working category anonymously at 23:52, Tuesday 3 September 2019

Received by Buckinghamshire County Council moments later

This column has still not been switched on, nearly 18 months after being renewed and following endless incidents being raised on FixMyStreet to rectify it.

If several old columns on nearby White Hill can be felled and replaced within 36 hours, as happened just this week, why on earth is this one still awaiting attention after all this time?

With autumn approaching, and darker nights just around the corner, it is imperative that the repair to this column is finally completed and it is bought back into use as soon as possible.
