Drains can't cope in Mill Lane every time it rains heavily

Reported via desktop in the Drainage category anonymously at 19:06, Wednesday 20 September 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

Whenever there is heavy (or even moderate) rainfall - the drains in Mill Lane can't cope with the volume of water and the lane floods. This used to happen occasionally, and it now happens every few months - and the water is getting higher. There are only 2 drains for the whole of Mill Lane and as they are at the lowest point, it pours down from both directions and floods the lane at that point. Please can the drains be rodded out - or additional drains be added to cope with the amount of rainfall that we get now.
