Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 16:29, Mon 19 August 2019

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

I reported a blocked drain and collapsed culvert several months ago - the Fix My Street reference was 400999083. In March I had an "im progress" email. Nothing happened. This morning I had another. And this afternoon one saying the repair is complete. I don't believe any work has been done - are you able to confirm what, if any, works have taken place? This is my original report... At edge of roadway outside Church Farm boundary There is a drainage culvert that runs from Petford Lea across under the road, then down the village under the verge before discharging into a ditch. A recent survey carried out as part of a planning application for Petford Lea showed that the culvert under the verge outside Church Farm has collapsed. This results in a puddle 3-4" deep across the width of the carriageway opposite The Old Rectory every time there is substantial rainfall, and it is very slow to disperse. It had been like this for at least a year, and possibly up to 2 years..

The report's reference number is 40099083. Please quote this if you need to contact the council about this report.

  • Despite messages saying work was to be done, and then that work had been completed NOTHING has happened. What is going on? Tuesday the water was 3" deep across the road.
