Drains fully blocked

Reported via desktop in the Drainage category anonymously at 16:26, Tue 9 November 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Drainage on the Skoda side of Crown Road near to the side entrance to the Skoda garage is now fully blocked with debris.

This will result in non-clearance of rain water and further aggravate flooding along Crown Road.

This was reported in August 2020 and January 2021. No attempt to clear the drains has been made at any occasion since it first being reported.

With likely subsequent and further flooding due to heavy rains this could well result in damage to properties along Crown Road. Community action against the council for failure of duty of care will also be likely and will be recommended.

Please advise of a timeframe to examine and rectify this issue forthwith.
