All drains blocked in viallage

Reported via desktop in the Damaged Gully or Catchpit Ironwork category by Trevellyon Newell at 09:23, Wed 1 November 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

This is the 7th year of creating this report of the drains being blocked.. on the pictures i have marked with yellow arrows where the drains are on courthill road. I own Court hill house and i am worried that due to the erosion caused by cars driving throught the puddle and splashing the bank causing the soil and lower section of the bank to slowly errode that my 122 year old house will fall into the road at some point there is already a noticable gap between my fence and the bank there didn't used to be. There is also the issue of cars splashing pedestrians due to the large puddle.

Can someone please come an look at it

  • In response to your enquiry and the numerous others we have received regarding the recent flooding and associated drainage issues. We understand the inconvenience and distress that such incidents can cause, and we appreciate your patience as we work to address these concerns. Our team has been working diligently to assess the situation and implement necessary measures to mitigate the impact of flooding. However, due to the volume of enquiries and the complexity of the issues at hand, we have been unable to address each individual report.

    Therefore, after much thought we have decided to close down reports relating to drainage matters during the winter months as after investigating the data it was apparent that many of the fixmystreet reports/issues were caused by the sheer volume of rainwater that fell meaning that the drainage system was unable to cope due to ground water saturation. We are aware of many areas across the county where flooding occurred and are currently working in conjunction with district and parish council towards addressing these issues.

    If you feel your enquiry does not fall within the scope of the above, please raise a new report with a detailed description including photos where possible/ safe to do so via www.fixmystreet.com

    We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter. Rest assured; we are committed to resolving these issues as quickly as possible.
