  • Thank you for your report. We have conducted a site visit in this location, the oil has stained the footway, opposed to being slippy, so is not causing a slip hazzard at this present time. The oil leak is the responsibility of the person who's vehicle it is to rectify. If this continues, please contact Cherwell district councils environmental health team regarding contamination, thank you.
