  • This has been a problem for a very long time and given that the council attaches a very low priority to repairing roads I doubt it ever will

    Still open, via questionnaire

  • From the reply I have received this won’t be fixed anytime soon as this is a very low priority and there is no budget.

  • Reason for flooding, drain is blocked with tree roots and landowner does not keep the ditch clear.
