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.
They only found out when the Environment Agency (EA) informed them that the culvert - which carries stream water from Schofield Road to Springfield Way - could collapse at any time.
The issue came to light at a meeting of Rutland County Council’s cabinet on Tuesday during discussions about highways maintenance contracts.
