  • Thank you for reporting this issue. The gully issue/blockage will be included in our forthcoming gully cleansing programme. As there are limited budget we have to prioritise high flood risk areas. It is a common issue in Oxfordshire for rain water to not flow away as quickly as it should, the water usually flows away after a few hours but if it has not then please report again. We will continue to monitor this on our routine inspections. Regards
