Mandy Bell Highways Officer is familiar with this ongoing flooding in heavy rain. A detailed email has been sent on Highways reporting site on 22August and I have been sent notification of receipt.

Reported in the Drainage category anonymously at 11:39, Monday 24 August 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Drains inadequate for several yards along this section of Foliat Drive during downpours; increased run-off from new houses on Old Courts despite some permeable drive bricks. Developers did replace or adapt one drain where silt built up due to right angled pipe. Have had to replace mortar on garden wall more than once. Mud and spray from cars driving through send water towards my and my neighbour’s doors and hit house wall. Have had sandbags in past but find them heavy to lift and old ones have disintegrated. This is an ongoing problem. I think Mandy Bell last investigated in 2012.
