Back to all reports

Blocked gulleys causing my property to flood. Several previous reports all closed out with no action taken by the council. 50 Abingdon Road Standlake OX297RQ. The previous report was closed out due to a lack of address despite several previous reports.

Since there has been zero response from the council, despite repeated flooding of my property I have taken it upon myself to clear the drains as the A415 is really quiet due to CV-19 restrictions. I have removed half a skips worth of accumulated decayed vegetation and by hand reached as far as I could into the gulley's to scoop out the blockages. 6 gulley's cleared, a days work. I will invoice the council for this. Please advise where to send this invoice and also who to contact with reference to compensation for the damage caused by repeated flooding of property due to inaction on previous reports. Many thanks.
