  • Thank you for your report. We had recently raised height of vehicular crossing kerbs to pretend water from highway entering private properties. There is issue with recently constructed tarmac drive running alongside Kennel Cottages which is leaning towards properties and has not functioning drainage system. That causing water running from drive and accumulate by the property walls.
    This issue should be addressed to land owner.
    Thank you
