Back to all reports

Three drains are blocked or covered over and the lane floods in heavy rain, meaning it is not navigable for those without boots or for senior citizens. I know the exact location of two drains and the approximate position of the main one: I would be very willing to show the locations to someone from the council by arrangement.

  • Six months after reporting the problem, nothing has been done. Heavy rain earlier this week (commencing 12.8.2019) again flooded the lane to a depth of c. six inches.

    The person who reported is still willing to meet the County Council on site to explain where drains are located but is hugely frustrated that no action has been taken.
