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

Reported anonymously at 15:46, Tuesday 7 July 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council and South Oxfordshire District Council less than a minute later

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,
