Who is responsible for this street light…!? Is it one of yours!?

WHOSE STREET LIGHT IS THIS? 

Hedon Blog readers are asked if they can help solve the mystery of who is responsible for a street light on Heron Close, Hedon which has not worked for over a year

Janice Edmonds first reported the light to East Riding Council in January 2010 after noticing it had not been working for months. They said “it’s not ours” and a local housing association was probably responsible. She reported it on FixMyStreet and got the same response from the East Riding Council.

After speaking to neighbours about who might be possible local landlords, Janice has contacted both North British Housing and Sanctuary Housing who both claimed “it’s not ours”.

Janice asked if the Hedon Blog could help in March 2010 – but, despite having the whole of the internet to track down the elusive landlord, ‘Sherlock Blog’ couldn’t help.

Janice has recently made a further call to the East Riding Council who suggested contacting Hedon Town Council… who in turn suggested contacting East Riding Council!

Janice  is quite rightly concerned about dark spots and feeling safe when returning home on a night and feels frustrated that she can’t find who to report the problem to: “Everyone I speak to is very polite and willing to help, but it seems nobody can. It’s always a case of ‘it’s not ours!”

So if anyone out there in the Hedon Blogosphere can help Janice, she would really like to know who is responsible for repairing this faulty light.

Landlords – is it one of yours!

  1. The light seems rather close to the window of the house – so it is possible that it has been disconnected by the landlord – whoever that might be – on purpose because of it causing a nuisance to the householders?
