All gullets along this road are blocked.

All of the gullets along the Chipping Norton Road are blocked and so no surface water is being reduced as it comes down the hill. I have attempted to clear two outside of my property, but could only lift one grill - I filled a wheelbarrow with mud from that one and still did not nearly clear it. I inspected the gulleys further up the hill and all are the same. I also reported this problem 2 years ago and was promised that they would be cleared, but that clearly hasn’t happened.

  • Thank you for your reply. When is this gulley cleansing programme scheduled for? The parish council believe that no work has been undertaken for several years and a number of verges have now grown over the edge of the road and blocking many of the gulleys in the village.
