Smell of drains

Reported in the Gully and Catchpits category anonymously at 11:56, Sunday 27 September 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Terrible smell throughout summer and still in now colder weather. This is an open grate roadside gully (not a drain) (ie for rainwater runoff). It is unhygenic and backs up in downpours onto our land. Concerned about sewage. Been ongoing for years. Thought work was done to fix it - but worse this year than ever. Can't stand on our drive without it smelling.
