  • Drains in the area are blocked and water is flowing to the lowest point, drains at the junction of hedgerley lane and lakes lane are also blocked and / or insufficient to cope with the volume of water. Following any significant rain, the road junction gets flooded and is then impassable to pedestrians. This was first reported beginning of October and it's been flooded on and off since then. Has currently been flooded for 12 consecutive days. The council have not responded and don't appear to have taken any action to remediate the issue.

  • 20/2 Whilst 5 of the local drains have been cleared: 1. there is still one drain outside #97 that remains blocked 2. there are a further 5 drains locally that are still blocked 3. the road hasn't been swept so debris is now clogging up the cleared drains 4. the hydrant / drain outside #79 is still pouring water out that is flowing down the drain

  • No further action has been taken around the rest of the blocked drains and road cleaning, expect further flooding following any significant rain

  • 17/4 A number of the local drains are still blocked - no significant rain for the last couple of weeks so the road hasn't flooded, however the root cause has not been fixed.

  • 15/5 Drains have been cleared but no significant rain fall to assess result. However, following recent rain shower, noticed that water was pouring from the service road around the corner in Lakes Lane down into the junction with Hedgerley Lane - these houses don't appear to have their own functioning drainage
