6 Long Meadow

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 10:37, Wednesday 14 August 2019

Received by Buckinghamshire County Council moments later

Enquiry number 46068966 It is not the gully itself that is the problem, this was sucked out a couple of years ago. In Greenway (the road Long Meadow comes off of) there are soakaways attached to all the gullies as there is in Long Meadow.About seven years ago those in Greenway were all sucked out, but not those in Long Meadow. We've lived here for 28 years and they have never been done. As you can see from the first Photo when there is excessive rainfall we get all the water from Greenway coming down the hill into Long Meadow and down our gully. This then overflows the soakaway and runs down the drive. There are two of these soakaways in my front garden so it must have been recognized as a problem when the houses were built. So can you please suck them out.
