Tree roots blocking gulleys

Reported via mobile in the Gully and Catchpits category anonymously at 10:08, Wednesday 17 February 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

This has been an ongoing issue for over 3 years. Each time we have heavy rain the gulleys block. A contractor clearing another gully looked and agreed with me that tree roots are blocking the gulleys. Please check and send out root cutter with the gully emptier. This is Church Road which leads both to the Church and Appleton Primary School. Please advise when works will be carried out. Thank you

  • March 3rd and rain again! So far no sign of the blocked gulleys being looked at and as you can see the flooding is bad even after a very short burst of rain. Please could you advise when the root cutter is likely to be out to solve the issue.
