During wet weather, water collects in a depression in the road adjacent to my wall and the water is repeatedly splashed onto my boundary wall and causing damage to the pointing and brickwork. I enclose some photos detailing this issue.

  • Thank you for the report regarding your boundary wall. I have conducted a site visit in this location today, 3.4.2019, after heavy rainfall yesterday, and found no standing surface water to indicate any drainage or carriageway issues present that would contribute to damage being caused to the wall from standing water. The carriageway was completely dry during my visit and there are currently no depressions present which meet Oxfordshire County Council intervention criteria. This can be monitored during routine inspections. Station Road into Claydon Road is statutory inspected on a 6 monthly basis, where any safety defects which meet Oxfordshire County Council intervention criteria will be raised accordingly.

  • I have to say that your findings are incorrect. If you look at the photos I sent to you previously, WHEN IT IS RAINING, there has to be a depression in the road as the photograph shows a collection of water. When rain collects in this depression it gets sprayed onto my wall, and especially during winter months the water sprayed onto my wall is causing more and more damage. I need this this repaired by yourselves so that the damage doesn’t get worse and later would accrue more cost to yourselves. In addition concomitant with this the road will need to be levelled so that water collection cannot further cause damage to my boundary wall. If you came the day it wasn’t raining then the water would already have gone due to vehicles continually driving through this water collection area by expressing the water out from the depression and leaving it dry. Please have another look at my photos which were taken during rainfall. If you would like to meet up with me so that I could give to you more clarification on this matter I would be only too pleased to show you. The photos are shown below and clearly shows water collection. I do have other photos detailing this issue and a video taken today during rainfall, where it clearly shows a vehicle's wheels entering into this standing water and splashing it onto my wall. I have included some extra photos extracted from the video for your perusal. Better still, the video is hard evidence of this problem but your portal will not upload videos only photos. I can supply the video though should you request it.
