The drains at the foot of the drive and in Standhill Lane, between LIttle Haseley and Standhill have been permanently blocked all winter. There is a continuous stream of water past the property and standing water even when there has been little rain. More potholes are appearing and when it was icy the lane was dangerous.

Council ref: ENQ21892321

  • 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
