Recess in Road causing splashing and damage to The Mill House

Reported via mobile in the Blocked Drain / Gully category anonymously at 13:58, Tuesday 2 January 2024 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5378784.

Rainwater collects in a dent in the road to form a puddle. Cars driving past splash the wall of my house. The Mill House is a 18th century grade 2 listed building pointed with heritage grade lime mortar. The water from the puddle has caused a persistent damp patch on the wall which is damaging the outside of the wall and the inside of the house. Please level the road to prevent this damage.

  • Thank you for your enquiry. This issue has been passed onto the relevant team for investigation.

    State changed to: Investigating

    Posted by Oxfordshire County Council at 13:58, Tuesday 2 January 2024

  • We are seeking your assistance in addressing a concerning issue on our neighbourhood and our property.

    Picture 1 and 2: In these images, you can observe that the trees are visibly deteriorating and are dangerously close to the power lines. This poses a potential risk of damage to the wires, which could result in electricity cutoffs and pose a threat to pedestrians.

    Picture 3: The dead tree located behind our garden and does not belong to the opposite farm either. Could you please investigate whether it falls under the responsibility of the council and remove?

    Your prompt attention to this matter is greatly appreciated, and I look forward to your guidance on how we can proceed to address these safety concerns.

    Thank you for your assistance.

    Best regards,

  • Probable ongoing, damp coming through the wall. No response from the council. One month and counting.
