I would like to raise a concern about a street light not working outside my place of work. We teach children and it makes our evening classes a bit scary!

The lampost is down by the river inbetween phase one gym and the T.A center. I have attached a photograph.

We rent our studio from Bath Artists Studio. The back garage door at the end of a row of garages is our studio where run workshops for children.

It would be really amazing if it was able to be fixed. Parents have raised concerns about it feeling unsafe especially as the nights are drawing in. Also a lot if people use the path along the cannal so sure it would be helpful for them also.

  • From the description provided the light is down by the garages/ river, light 002. We do not own this light and have not record of its owners. It does seem to be on private land. I have ask our contractors to check on Light 016 near the main road, which we do own and maintain.

  • We've looked into this report and found our street light 016 by the main road is working fine. The light by the river as shown in the picture, numbered 002, is not council owned and so we are unable to repair. We are sorry we cannot help directly but trust if you can establish the owner of the light they will be able to help.

    We've closed this report. To find out more about our street lighting please visit services/ streets-and-highway-maintenance/ lighting/ street-lighting
