Water drains from street and pavement into my house

Reported via mobile in the Pavements category anonymously at 11:48, Wednesday 20 October 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The camber of the pavement, road, lowered kerb funnels rainwater from the street and neighbours down pipes straight to my door and into the house.. We bought the property earlier this year and now see why the door has rotted and the plaster is coming off the walls. The house is listed and will continue to be at risk if this cannot be fixed. We are having a new door made but that will not stop the water entering our property. Builders have told us the council needs to be informed of this problem as they cannot work on the pavement.
