Blocked rainwater drains

The rainwater drains along Collice Street are all blocked and therefore slow draining causing the street to fill with water and become unpassable on foot at times.

Thank you for reporting this issue. The gully issue/blockage will be included in our forthcoming gully cleansing programme. As there are limited budget we have to prioritise high flood risk areas. It is a common issue in Oxfordshire for rain water to not flow away as quickly as it should, the water usually lows away after a few hours but if it has not then please report again. We will continue to monitor this on our routine inspections. Regards

This is in area that is susceptible to flooding and is a continuous problem, water does not flow away within a few hours but often takes days where residents are having to continually manually clear blockages to prevent houses being affected.
