Garages behind houses on Borough Avenue old blocked drain has cover missing

The drain cover in the car park behind the houses on Borough Avenue opposite Saxon off Norman Way has been missing for a long period of time, this has caused it to become blocked by debris and now weeds and is dangerous as it can cause accidents by people tripping into the hole in the dark or like my nephew today who was in the car park and rode into the hole and fell off his scooter on the way to the back gate. Also when we have a lot of rain the drain causes flooding and is inconvenient. The drain needs to be cleared and a new cover added or the whole thing blocked in,

Thank you for your report. The garage area behind the houses on Borough Avenue is not shown to be the responsibility of Oxfordshire County Council, Highways. I am unfortunately unable to help you further as we do not keep records of third party land ownership, other than to suggest contacting Land Registry to see if they can help/advise you https://www.gov.uk/ government/ organisations/ land-registry.
