Blocked gulley and inadequate drainage

The photos speak for themselves. To add to the hazard of the sunken pavement the depression fills up with debris compounding the hazard by slippage; I can’t wait for the snow and ice. The road and pavement will bean ice rink!

  • 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
