Surface water flooding remains following work done in connection to incident report 2254076

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2364923.

Significant surface water flooding in the highway near Brown Gables. The incident was reported previously as per 2254076. The gully tagged yellow has been cleaned following the incident report 2254076 but unfortunately this has not solved the problem as yet again our driveway flooded up to the front door. However the flooding was very dangerous this morning and as you can see vehicles couldnt see the edge of our driveway and the highway. I would appreciate this being looked into as this is becoming very dangerous as well as inconvenient.

  • Thank you for reporting this issue. The gully issue/blockage will be included in our forthcoming gully cleansing programme. As there is a limited budget, we have to prioritise high flood risk areas. Sometimes it is the volume of water that falls, and our drains are unable to cope, but the water eventually disperses. If you feel your property is at risk, please contact the emergency services or contact our call centre on 0345 310 11 11 to request sandbags. We will continue to monitor this on our routine inspections. Regards
