Hedging without ditching, exacerbating flooding

Reported in the Drainage category anonymously at 13:30, Thu 14 November 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later

The tall, private hedge on the corner of B4030 and South Street, Caulcott gets trimmed, but the debris is regularly left in the ditch (Gallos Brook). Today there is flooding which is exacerbated by this. Locals have cleared the ditch. This is the responsibility of the hedge owner. Please could you advise him accordingly.
