Oil spillage yet again

Reported in the Pavements category anonymously at 17:46, Monday 1 June 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Oil is spilled yet again at this address and means that everyone using this pathway has to either walk on the road or walk through oil and petrol that has been spilt by the person using the pavement as his personal car park and carrying out car his maintenance business on the pavement. This has now been there for a week, and is an ongoing problem at this address. It is horrendous especially now that the children are back at school, they have to walk through this mess and tread oil and diesel back into the house, and it sticks to my buggy wheels which means it then transfers into the car and house. I have even had to walk past with the children whilst he is welding a car on the pavement. This is not a safe situation and needs to be stopped
