  • It is now SIX days since Mr O'Sullivans report and many years since the problem began. When is there REALLY going to be action?

  • On 16th you provided an update stating fault will be fixed with 5 working days. The 16th was last Wednesday and day 1 of the 5 you quote, day 5 will be Tuesday 22nd Oct when I expect, at a minimum, the investigation to have started. I am informed the root cause is down to the size of the drainage pipes, but I am sceptical of that as with no rain in past 48 hours, still we have standing water and no attempt by the council to come and pump it out This water has now been standing for over a week now and is now an environmental and health issue and I will he reporting this and you the council to the health and safety executive and you’ll probably be fined. Shame you can’t see and fix the root cause of a problem that has been around for more years than I recall Perhaps deflect the fortunes you are making at the recycling centres to better use, oh hang on a minute, the first report made available shows it’s been a financial failure, cue shock and surprised looks

  • The work done was to vacuum the water

    Guess what, we had more rain and yes it flooded again and it will continue to flood until such a time you realise that a bandaid on a broken bone approach just doesn’t work

    For over 30 years this has been a problem and for over 30 years the local Councils bury their heads and hide

    There are elections approaching and I sincerely hope they result in a change in the Governance of the Council
