Gully at bottom of Gillotts Lane was cleared out by locals some months ago, but now blocked and full of mud/debris which has been washed down the hill with all the rain, causing flooding If Gillotts Lane had edging and a decent surface only water would be washed down and thereby solve the problem

  • The gully is now full of rainwater and overflowing into the road to mix with water flowing down Chalk Hill causing flooding at bottom of hill

  • Still no done and more detritus being washed down Gillotts Lane into the gully = more puddles on the road

  • Thank you for reporting this issue. The gully issue/blockage will be included in our forthcoming gully cleansing programme. As there is a limited budget, we have to prioritise high flood risk areas. Sometimes it is the volume of water that falls, and our drains are unable to cope, but the water eventually disperses. We will continue to monitor this on our routine inspections. Regards
