Gawcott: Verge adj Greenbanks (cottage)

Reported via desktop in the Street light not working category anonymously at 23:24, Tue 15 December 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Street light not working adj Greenbanks for several (8+?) weeks. Dangerous, particularly since clocks went back several weeks ago - easy to trip over eg. bins left on pavement for refuse collections. Adjacent light (outside Lace Cottage - separately reported) also not working throughout same period, thus a long section with no lighting. Previously reported by myself on 24/11/20 (ref 40148566), and reported by Council as 'Fixed' on 15/12/20 ( report/ 2403327) . However, both mentioned streetlamps are still not working, so I don't know exactly what has been 'fixed'. (note: streetlight locations on your map do not match up with those in actuality - they relate to the old streetlamps which existed before the power cables were re-routed underground several years ago. Thus, 'LC009' is the nearest location to this non-functioning light, which is actually outside Greenbanks cottage.)
