Streetlamp opposite 83 Chiltern Road

Reported via desktop in the Street Lights category anonymously at 19:51, Sun 26 December 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 365135.

Lamp does not turn on every night. Problem appears to be intermittent but started about two weeks ago. Very dark and a potential security and safety issue.

  • This lamp is still not working at night. Due to its location at the junction of an alleyway into Radburn Court, the darkness represents a danger to any residents in the immediate area and more so to any passers by. There is not enough illumination from the lamps further along Chiltern Road as they are too distant. This really is a serious issue and should be addressed as a matter of urgency before someone is injured either by accident such as a trip or by attack as the alleyway has become perfect cover in an area that is already suffering from drug dealing. I do not want to be hearing from local media that there has been an incident in this area. I trust you will act upon this. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
