Taylor Wimpey homeowners in Oakham unaware they were liable for culvert with £86,000 repair bill

Homeowners in Oakham were unaware they are liable for the upkeep of a water pipe which now has an £86,000 repair bill.

The issue came to light at a meeting of Rutland County Council’s cabinet on Tuesday during discussions about highways maintenance contracts.
