Two out of five gullies blocked

Reported via iOS in the Gully and Catchpits category by Rupert Molloy at 21:01, Sat 19 September 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

On New Street 2 out of 5 gullies are blocked, admittedly difficult to access because of parked cars, and difficult to imagine an inundation from rain when the weather is fine, but it is sure to follow.

Council ref: ENQ20876523

  • Thank you for reporting this issue. The gully issue/blockage will be included in our forthcoming gully cleansing programme. As there is a limited budget, we have to prioritise high flood risk areas. Sometimes it is the volume of water that falls, and our drains are unable to cope, but the water eventually disperses. If you feel your property is at risk, please contact the emergency services or contact our call centre on 0345 310 11 11 to request sandbags. We will continue to monitor this on our routine inspections. Regards
