Recurrent flooding on corner of Woodstock Road and Stonesfield Lane

Thank you for including the road’s drainage in the forthcoming gully cleansing programme as per your response on 5th January 2021 to my previous report, which is very welcome.
However, given the recurrent nature of this issue, and its potential seriousness, I believe that a more structural solution is required.
Not only does the flooding already inundate houses on Woodstock Road, it is perilously close to the electricity sub-station on the corner of Woodstock Road and Stonesfield Lane, which sits below the level of the road and thus is vulnerable to future flooding incidents.
These incidents have been getting worse in recent years, particularly since newer developments further up the hill on Woodstock Road likely cause increased storm water run-off. This means that the infrastructure down the hill needs to be modified to cope.
