Drainage gullys and drain pipes still blocked along the West side of green end street between numbers 11 to 29

Reported in the Flooding category by Dom Walker at 09:34, Wed 30 May 2018

Received by Buckinghamshire County Council moments later

These drains and gullys remain bloked dispite them being reported to you at the end of January 2018.

Your reference was 40062129 I have done your online tracking and the work is still..pending!

Obviously we cannont expect these old drainage systems to cope with something like the major downpour we had on Sunday 27/5/18 but they are so blocked up that our drives and even back gardens are filling with muddy water when there is moderate to heavy rainfall. These drains run to a culvert/ditch along the East side of the road, this too is full of debris and is not running as it should.

Please attend to this as soon as you can.

  • We could really benifit from this being fixed asasp. More storms are due and it should be a fairly straight forward, gully emptying/surface water drain clearing problem. This is doubtless a problem added to by 8 wheelers full of earth going up the road all day, every weekday.

    Perhaps the building companies would like to contribute to your costs. To date they are only sending a small road sweeper up the road which picks up some surface dirt but sweeps most into these drains?
