All drains silted ongoing problem flood water runs down the road straight into my driveway and causes very worrying water levels to rise I spent well over an hour stopping water into and near my front porch and rising into my garage all due to blocked drains on Wootton village road! Which I had to try and unblock to get the water to drain and not down my driveway !!

  • This is now an ongoing problem each year at this time of year flash floods. The flooding into my driveway is 80% due to blocked drains. They are completely solid. You put a rod down and it just hits solid mass. Only one actually allows the flood water to drain! The other problem is the kerbstones outside of my driveway have dropped lower than the others and the flood water just flows down into my drive.

  • The problem has not been fixed I have now had to purchase some flood defence barriers ( not cheap either) as I fear more flash floods!
