Flooding due to no gullies and mud

Reported via desktop by Sandra Clee at 12:09, Monday 13 June 2022

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

I sent a letter and photo to Henley Standard in 2017, and to fix my street in 2018 and 2021 regarding this problem. There are no gullies, soakaways, or drainage the length of Mill Lane. This year the lane has flooded 3 times with ankle deep water. It takes several weeks for the lake to dry up. Heavy lorries and delivery vans regularly use the lane, scuffing the edges and bringing mud and grit on to the surface, which has resulted in several humps, one at least 25cms high half way across the lane, as well as potholes. In 2017 the OCC responded to my letter to the HEnley Standard, saying “OCC are aware of flooding problems in Mill Lane and the intention is to install a soak away and also carry out repair work to the road surface. At the moment there is a development taking place nearby and the soak away and patching will take place once that is completed.” I am not aware that there has been any ‘nearby’ development taking place in the last 5 years. I hope that OCC will now take action to and come and see for themselves the state of Mill Lane.
