Reported via Android in the Drainage category by Tj harris at 17:52, Thursday 2 July 2020

Rd between 14 and 15 Boxhedge. In regard to previous reports pretty sure that advance notice of gully emptying and or signs that work needs to be done would overcome the issue of any parked vehicles. Ultimately the only thing that is required is action rather than excuses. Send out a tow truck with the gully emptier and if people have been given notice and their vehicle is in the way bloody move it

Thank you for your report. Unfortunately, advanced notice, letter drops and no waiting cones, do not guarantee that vehicles will be relocated. With regards to removing vehicles from the Highway, Highways do not have enforcement powers to conduct this. As previously discussed, I have arranged for the gully outside number 15 to be jetted through, on both occasions whilst visiting, (both after hheavy rainfall) there has been no standing surface water to suggest any immediate rainage issues, other than the shear amount of surface water which can often day a few hours to disperse. Some gullies are slower to drain, this does not mean that there are drainage issues or that they are blocked.This report has been answered in full and is now closed.
