East Street residents have experienced persistent issues with the particular drain over the last 8-10yrs, but this hasn’t been addressed by the Highways Authority - this has caused multiple instances of flooding on East Street as a result, with emergency services (police and fire service) both speaking many hours over this time closing the road and attempting to pump excess water away…. A number of these properties have cellars, which have had water ingress and damage as a result.
We now find that the Swish Fibre installation crew have deposited what looks like sand and other groundwork material in this drain, which is where they stored their materials for a week or so.
