WEEK END STORM CAUSES REAL PROBLEMS IN OSCOTT
Sadly the storm at the weekend has caused a lost of damage and flooding across the city. Having looked at parts of the South of the city it is clear it is going to take some time to put right.
Oscott did not escape the storm either with a number of homes flooded and some trees coming down ( as in Shady Lane) or being hit by lightning. ( Oscott School Lane entrance to the Aldridge Recreation Ground)
I have yet again been calling on senior Council officials and Amey Highways to ensure our Oscott drains in are correctly maintained and have asked the Housing department and Leisure Service department to inspect trees on their land to check for their safety following the storm and flooding.
