The surface water from the main road filters to the slip road at the top of the road/public right of way, leading to the school (and public footpath), where there is no drainage at the lowest point. The dropped curb to the sloped road to the side of the church (Public right of way), leading to the school then carries the overflow of the water toward the school car park, taking with it the continued gutter spillage from the Oxford House building at the side (which has been like this from the day the build was completed).

The flood in the car park then filters through the emergency side gate, through the hedge bedding by the fence boundary next to the public footpath, then pools at the side gate, across the path creating a massive puddle for the children/public to jump over (impossible) to access the school from the side, or to continue up the pathway. The flood continues to meander down the public right of way passage, to the bend in the alleyway (which for most is the route and access to the school) and creates another large pool of water for everyone to negotiate.

Drainage management needs addressing, particularly because there is none at this point.

This has been ongoing for around 2-3 years!!!

    Images from the school car park, caused by overflow of surface water from the main oxford road and slip road. The water has subsided slightly when this was taken but the water will usually remain for the full day, causing issues with access to the school and alleyway.
