The problem is getting worse and now making the pavements slippery with the silt/mud . if I'm around I will sort the problem out . Someone could slip on the pavement or drown on the flooded road. The problem has always been there but over the last 3 years its noticeably worse . The silt used to be sucked out of the drains but this no longer seems 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
