This has been blocked for some 10 months. I have tried to poke it down but it is full of sludge.

  • Please can this be cleared as a matter of urgency. There is still surface water on top of the drain 24 hours after the last rainfall. When it rains the water now starts to flow into the garden of the property opposite. If this is not cleared soon it will start to cause damage. Also this morning after a heavy frost the road surface was like an ice rink with an accident waiting to happen!

  • 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
