  • The action taken has not addressed the overflowing rainwater drains which continue to flow down the road surface for the length of Church lane. The Council only looked at the culvert at the bottom of church lane but the problem affects the whole lower half of Church lane. The drains along the lane are not accepting any surface water or spring water
