On the public road outside 5 Hemlock Close

Reported in the Street light not working category anonymously at 07:28, Tue 7 January 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

This street light is not working. It’s making reversing off our driveway dangerous. I’m a disabled driver and can’t turn round to look like normal drivers. I have to rely on my mirrors but with no street light I risk hitting pedestrians crossing the end of the drive to get to the open land where they walk dogs. There is a conflict between parked cars on the road too. We think it’s probably not been working for six months. We don’t notice or rely on it in the summer as there is more daylight. Thanks.
