The contractors building houses at (I think) 34 North Hinksey Lane and pumping water from the site onto the lane. Are they allowed to do that? It is causing some major puddles, and I'm concerned about the lane becoming an ice rink once it freezes. Thank you.

  • Thank you for your report. I have visited the site specified. I have spoken to the foreman who said he would divert the water run off from the site so that it doesn't flow on to the carriageway. He has has since done this. So I am closing this report.
