Council Tax Contribution for Highway Maintenance in Forest Hill OX33 1DZ

The request was successful.

Dear Oxfordshire County Council,

My initial equiry to SODC has been redirected to OCC.

My Council Tax Account No: 45479869

I have just received my Council Tax bill for 2020/21, which shows that the expenditure for Highways & Transport Services is 9%.

As I have made several posts through FixMyStreet for the unblocking of road gullies directly outside my house to no avail I would like to know how much of my Council Tax is paid to Oxford County Council for Highway Maintenance and transport.

There is no annual/regular/scheduled cleaning or maintenance of the roads and pavements in this village and no regular daily public transport service as such. There is one private bus service a week if I recall correctly. I have yet to see the bus in the last 17 months since returning to my house in Forest Hill

Please confirm my Council Tax cost contribution for this particular Council Service as requested above.

Yours faithfully,

Waclaw Akielan
