There is a longstanding and wholly irresponsible problem with drainage in Elvendon road near Battle Farm. It floods repeatedly with only moderate rain and the edges of the road are soft and waterlogged.

Reported via desktop in the Drainage category anonymously at 05:54, Saturday 9 September 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Yet the storm drain at this point is totally clogged with mud (unsurprising). this needs to be remedied at once for some short term relief.

A proper rainwater management solution is required urgently.

With climate change making high intensity rain more likely this problem must be solved before any further property development in the village is approved. To have an access road in such a dangerous condition is unacceptable
