Ditch overflowing

Reported in the Drainage category by Charlotte Fortune at 19:13, Thursday 27 August 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The ditch,which is the council responsibility , outside our house has flooded yet again. The water will not drain from the ditch through the drain under the road which is situated on the corner of Murcott road and Mill Lane. We have had this problem for many years and reported it many times for nothing to be done. The council supplied us with sand bags some years ago but even that was a struggle for the council to supply. Our garage floods when the ditch overflows as the water is not draining away . With the climate changing and torrential rain becoming the norm this problem will just get worse . Please respond with a plan of action to resolve this issue once and for all. Do we have to go to our MP to escalate this further ?
