Reported via Android in the Drainage category by Victoria Ashby at 19:31, Friday 18 June 2021

Whenever there is heavy rain, we have flooding in the road. This is of particular concern as the building of a new housing development is due to commence at some point opposite us and new road. Could the drains be blocked or are they just kit coping with the rainfall?
Council ref: ENQ21898032

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
