Blocked drain

Reported in the Drainage category anonymously at 17:28, Thu 20 December 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 2 minutes later

Dear Sir or Madam, There is a drain badly blocked outside 18 Horsefair in Chipping Norton, just by the Kwik Fit/Central Tyre garage - please see the provided photo showing the location. Now we're in winter and are seeing lots of rain, water is standing at this portion of the street. There is a second drain also outside 18 Horsefair (by the lay-by where there are parked cars) which also appears blocked. Please can these be unblocked ASAP as we run the risk of this area of the street being flooded if we see heavy rainfall. Many thanks in advance for resolving this issue.

Council ref: ENQ18822062

  • Dear Sir or Madam, I am the resident who originally submitted this report about the blocked drain outside 18 Horsefair. I note the state of the report has been changed to "fixed", however the drain looks exactly the same as it did before; it is still full of leaves and looks no different at all. Could you please let me know what work was carried out? Thank you.

  • Dear Sir or Madam, please see this photograph I made today (10 March 2019) to show that the drain is still very much blocked and there has been no change since my initial report of 20 December 2018. Why was the state of my report changed to "fixed"?
