Back to all reports

The majority of the drains in Kings Road, west side, appear to be blocked, hence I am not identifying any one such. Please check the entire length of the road from near the town hall through to the junction with Mount View. There are NO drains along either York Road or Clarence Road so it is Imperative you maintain the Kings Road drains to reduce the risk of flooding.

A programmed work schedule for checking all drains throughout Henley is required. You only appear to send out the Gully Wagon in response to members of the public reporting problems when it's often too late. Just look at how many drainage or flooding issues have been reported for Henley in recent months using FixMyStreet!

  • 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. If you feel your property is at risk, please contact the emergency services or contact our call centre on 0345 310 11 11 to request sandbags. We will continue to monitor this on our routine inspections. Regards
