Gully / Drain /Highway maintenance schedules

Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear Oxfordshire County Council,

It has been brought to my attention that the Gully / Drain cleaning and maintenance schedule has been amended to each drain / gully on the highways being cleaned once every 5 years. I am also led to believe that when somebody reports a blocked gully on Fix My Street that whilst it might be inspected, it will only be cleaned or repaired if there is a significant risk to flooding of properties or danger to life.

Can you please provide copies of meeting minutes where this has been discussed and agreed and in particular a copy of the risk assessment for this. In addition, can you please provide all communication between highways and other parties where this matter has been discussed including where members of the public may have raised this as an issue.

Yours faithfully,

David Bowen

Dear Mr Bowen,

 

I am writing to update you on your request for information, which is due
to be sent to you tomorrow.

 

Due to these unprecedented times with regards to COVID-19, resources are
having to be diverted elsewhere. As such, we are endeavouring to respond
to information requests within timeframes where possible. This is because
the Council will necessarily need to prioritise its staff and resources on
the delivery of key services. The Information Commissioner recognises that
this may occur during this unprecedented time and [1]has given
guidance. As such, it is unlikely that you will receive a response to your
information request by the twentieth working day. That being said,
officers are actively working on it and we will update you again on or
before 1^st April.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Claire Buller

Access & Disclosure Officer.
