Soil/Debri and vegetation run off with flood water

Reported via desktop in the Gully and Catchpits category anonymously at 17:56, Monday 17 April 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Heavy storms that create water run-off from the verges and the upper end of the holloway through the village is prevented from entering the numerous drain openings due to lack of structured gullies that feed the drains. This water is then running in torrents on the adjacent road surface that is pooling and undermining the road surface further into the village from Piemans Cottage to Mory's to the south of the village. A similar problem exists on the road leading into Great Coxwell from Oakfield and its adjoining paddock onto the bends into Cherry Orchard where water is then cascading into the road to the height of the kerb at No1 Cherry Orchard. On the bends at this location there is insufficient infrastructure to drain flood water running from the track known as 'Gipsy lane' running from the Steeds Farm site from North to South into the village. This also causes significant flood water to run across the path adjacent to Oakfield Paddock and the bend situated at Pound Cottage. While these represent two separate areas of the village they are both areas that set out a hazard to traffic and pedestrians when water fails to run from the roads into the gullies and further into the ditches. These issues have arisen over the past two years.
