Drain blocked since December 2023 - Fall due to ICE

Reported via desktop in the Blocked Drain / Gully category anonymously at 16:54, Tuesday 12 March 2024

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

This drain has been blocked for month. The water runs down the hill and I fell on the Ice in early January. This was reported to Cllr Leftman, Cllr Dean and Chairman of Parish Council. If the drain was cleared there wouldn't be a problem with ice on the road in wintery conditions.

  • This drain is still blocked and water running down the road. When will this be resolved as it is now May and I reported this in March but the issue has been a problem since December 2023 and earlier.

  • 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.
