Sent to Oxfordshire County Council and South Oxfordshire District Council less than a minute later

This 2m by 1m pothole with exposed drain cover is in the centre of the car park by School House and OCC Library, on land owned by OCC for Langtree Academy & Woodcote Primary School. The pothole is getting larger and larger, has been present for over two years. A danger to both pedestrians and vehicles as in winter can be covered in leaves and sharp edges of drain exposed to vehicle tyres. The problem is exacerbated as drain overflows during periods of heavy rainfall and area floods and freezes during the winter months.

South Oxfordshire District Council have emailed a response to a previous report stating they do not have responsibility for this location. They say Oxfordshire County Council should be contacted as they have responsibility to the library, schools and car parking connected to this site. Please can this report be sent to the relevant department at OCC.

  • This large hole remains without being addressed or even any signs of inspection through survey markings. I understand OCC have let Woodcote primary school fall into a shocking and disgraceful state of repair - are they intending to let all areas surrounding it to do the same?
