  • Sadly - due to not looking at this promptly there are now three drains blocked in Oxford road - standing water has caused the temporary pothole patches to crumble into gravel and block more drains - so this is now a drain fix and pothole fix - Oxford Road is now effectively w3w locations are: premature.digestion.caravans - comic.bulbs.overture & ultra.door.choirs

  • Water is getting splashed on pavement it’s dangerous especially when kids are walking to school. They can be splashed with debris coming out of potholes. Water coming out continuously despite any weather so I think there is burst pipe. Even in sunny weather water is coming out from that corner.

  • Properties at Pensfield have flooded again today, so the issue has been escalated to an Inspector. Without action, this issue will lead to a claim against the council for damage to properties. Why is there no action after 7 weeks??

  • Most of the gullies along Oxford Road need clearing/cleaning, starting from the East side.
