Very poor lighting in car park at Bath Sports and Leisure Centre

Reported via desktop in the Street light fault category anonymously at 22:13, Sunday 19 September 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 15 hours, 59 minutes later. Council ref: 3011857.

Hello, I hope this is the right place to report this issue as I couldn't find another place on your website to report it. I want to report extremely poor lighting at present in the car park at Bath Sports and Leisure centre, especially in the slope down from the road, the area in front of the Pavilion and under the foot bridge to the centre. I have been concerned about this issue for several weeks, and when I was last at the centre on Thursday 9 September I counted 5 separate lights which were either not working at all or only giving out a very faint light. It is also very hard to see the entrance to the car park when approaching from North Parade after dark. Owing to the poor lighting I am, as a woman, uncomfortable attending the centre after dark - but I can imagine it's probably not very nice whoever you are. Could you arrange for this issue to be resolved asap please? Thank you.

  • The street lighting department do not own and maintain all of the lighting at the sports centre grounds. Most of the lighting we believe is maintained by our property services department. We shall forward your concerns to them and ask them to be in touch. We have also asked for vegetation to be cleared from 2 lanterns which we do maintain in the hope this will also help. We've closed this report but can add further comments if needs be.
