Leaking sewage at Cutteslowe Park Pavilion being investigated

thisisoxfordshire: Oxford City Council Oxford City Council

COUNCIL workers were called to Cutteslowe Pavilion in North Oxford over the weekend after complaints about sewage.

Oxford City Council was alerted following reports that sewage was leaking from the pavilion. Workmen were on site on Saturday cleaning up the area.

City council spokesman Louisa Dean said: “We are aware of the problem and doing our best to keep the area clean.

“We have had a high-pressure water jet there regularly to deal with the situation.

“We know that this is not an ideal situation and we are working to rectify it.

“We have had the drain surveyed with a camera and the work to repair it has been ordered.

“We hope that the situation will be resolved as soon as possible.

“We thank the park users for their patience in the meantime.”

Surely Oxford City Council, knowing the on-going problem, should be forced to close the Pavillion and all affected areas, and held liable under Health and Safety? Making excuses isn't acceptable - especially when it can find the resources to pay one of its employees more than £140,000 per annum out of the public purse!

Funny how this leak was reported to the Oxford mail back in April and they decided to ignore it ... Now BBC Oxford takes up the mantle and the Oxford mail are interested.

They need to shut down the pavillion right away. If this was a leak in a commercial property environmental health would have shut it down long ago. Sad that EH won't take action against another council department leaving the only losers as those that use Cutteslowe park.
