Blocked gully not cleaned for 10 years!

Reported via iOS in the Damaged Gully or Catchpit Ironwork category anonymously at 13:05, Friday 5 January 2024

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

According to FixMyStreet, this gully was last cleaned in May 2013 - over 10 years ago! Little wonder it is now blocked up with debris and with recent rainfall is preventing proper drainage. With further rainfall this could lead to flooding in this area. After more than a decade this gully is long overdue a clean out!

  • No wonder the water doesn’t drain!

  • 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.
