Flooding due to blocked road gully

Reported in the Drainage category anonymously at 11:23, Mon 30 September 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 3 minutes later

Following moderately heavy rain 27th Sept 2019 the road outside Closes Filed to 94 Appleton Road flooded. The water was not draining down the gulley drain outside Closes Field (picture attached). It is OK now but I shall send more pictures next time it floods. Similar flooding was the result of the road gulley being blocked by tree roots in 2007 and 2008. The council agreed to inspect and check the gulley annually (see correspondence from John Beaumont) to me. Flooding is a risk to both traffic and housing. Many thanks for dealing with this matter.
