By the telegraph pole in Middle Close, already prooved to be a BT issue

Reported in the Blocked drain category by Tina Coles at 09:51, Sun 14 October 2018

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Clifford Marshall inspected this and it has been proven that the telegraph pole goes through the drain. We were told this would be sorted out before the bad weather set in, however nothing has been done and we now have flooding again. Please can you update us on this situation, afterall it is at no cost to you to fix! I am once again unable to gain access to my vehicles without donning wellington boots. The lady in house no 1 is over 85, and other families have young children. If a vehicle comes round the close the water goes down the drives. Thank you for any assistance

  • Please could this be looked into again, as you can see BT came out over a month ago, and dug a hole, which we have to keep covering and putting the guards back round. But nothing more has been done, and as you can see the Close is still flooding, as they have not replaced the damaged pie with the extesion around the post as I understand they were going to.

  • Please see Photo, On Wednesday 5th December 2018 we were unable to get onto the drive of house no 1, see the green line as to where the water came to, red line is no 1, blue line is no 2. Sand bags had to be deployed again. What happended to the promise of it being fixed before the bad weather please.
