Several street lights out making path dark and unsafe

Reported via mobile in the Street Lighting category anonymously at 15:56, Sunday 23 January 2022

Sent to Rutland County Council less than a minute later

I previously reported this issue of multiple street lights being out, on the path between Park Lane and Catmose College. I was told the road / path was unadopted and not the council's responsibility. According to the Find My Street website it is adopted so I would ask that you check again. If not the case, can you advise who is responsible please? Surely the council has a duty of care, since the area is very dark and unsafe, especially for young people going to and from Catmose College. Thank you.

  • Thank you for reporting this issue. After some investigation we have determined that the series of lighting columns in question, set out alongside public footpath E204, were erected by the Rutland Care Village developers. They are still owned and maintained by the operators of Rutland Care Village and draw their power from a residential supply to the building, unlike street lighting owned and maintained by the council. In the circumstances we have had to pass the issues you've reported over to the operators of Rutland Care Village for resolution.
