Previous works have not fixed the drainage issue

Reported via mobile in the Damaged Gully or Catchpit Ironwork category anonymously at 12:31, Tue 19 December 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

ENQ23965001 is deemed as fixed. I have just been out and cleared the leaves etc blocking the culverts and ditches so that the water is able to flow into the ditch that had been cleared on the A417 opposite the byway leading to Stream Road. Unless something is put in place to route the water into the ditch it has been pointless clearing it. Some before and after photos

  • The road is now completely blocked by water which is rising steadily with each rainfall.

    This issue had been reported on numerous occasions and investigations took place confirmed by your own teams as a blocked calvert under the A417 as marked on this tracker.

    The Parish Council has continuously raised concerns and reported the issue any to the extent that there is no longer any choice but to determine that any damage to property caused by this incident will have the backing of the council of any individual who wishes to seek damages due to the lack of appropriate action taken to resolve the issue before it has reached this stage.

  • 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.
