Conservation lamppost installed but never connected to electricity

Reported via desktop in the Street light not working category anonymously at 16:25, Tue 6 October 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

This lamppost is just "cosmetic". It was installed a few years ago but has never been connected to the electricity so does not work. Instead, a "bog standard" light a few yards away, attacced to a telegraph pole" is the one that lights the street. What on earth was the point of going to a lot of expense installing a "conservation" lamppost but never use it?

  • Been reported for a month now. Observed some contractors tinkering around but light still does not come on. Nobody has contacted us to give us an update.

  • It is Bucks Council's responsibility and they have been in touch offering options on how to fix the problem. We've agreed the way forward - they just need to get it done now!
