  • Hopeless response. Council sent a crew to fix problem, but light still did not work. Reported again on Cheshire East website. Got a phone call saying problem reported as fixed. Advised not the case. Another crew visited and supposedly fixed electric wiring. Light still not working but got an email today from Cheshire East saying problem fixed. Reporting again on Cheshire East website tonight to advise light still out as of 26/03/3014.

  • Questionnaire filled in by problem reporter; State changed to: Fixed, 19:43, Thu 22 May 2014

  • After 2 submissions to Fix My Street , 7 reports on Cheshire East Council website ( plus a visit to the Macclesfield council office to bang the table about the pitiful response over a period of 4 months) they finally got the message that the light was out and fixed it early May. PS, I was on holiday and missed the exact date.

    State changed to: Fixed
