Taking a break...

FixMyStreet is going offline shortly, probably permanently. The software is old and needs a complete rewrite, the site is being bombarded by spammers, and it is debatable whether councils are receiving and/or acting on FixMyStreet reports.

As of now, it is not possible to post new issues, or updates to published issues.

Hi, We own the section at 868 Acacia Bay Road and are in the process of planning to build a house. The street light immediately outside the property is leaning and it would be good if it could be straigtened up (it is not about to fall over, hence not urgent - only a slight lean). Is it also possible to use some form of reflector to focus the light itself on the road as it also shines very brightly on what will be our front deck / lounge area (is there something that can block the back of the bulb?) Also, noticed there is not much lighting on Acacia Bay road where it runs in front of Wily terrace - are there any plans for this so people do not have to use high beams (and perhaps as they are starting to redo the retaining on Wily Tce). Thanks very much.

Request 1117512 updated at TaupoDC. Dispatch ID2431 was logged and assigned to the Contractor to check the pole and lamp. Will also have an inspection to check if there's an adequate lighting on the road for vehicles and pedestrian.
Request 1117512 closed at TaupoDC. The Contractor had a look at pole and it has a slight lean ----he thinks it might be better to address the issue of straightening and shading when the house is built as they havent even done any ground work yet. Will also looking at putting an additional Streetlight in the area, still needs further inspection re this matter.
