Flooding causing risk to properties and people

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 02:59, Mon 17 February 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Due to blocked drains, the road has yet again flooded and water is now flooding the road, pavements (making them unable to pass now on foot or bike) and entering gardens and driveways. The problem has been reported numerous times over the years and never resolved. Please, please, please fix the issue to avoid the repeated risk to properties and injury (someone will get injured before long as although the pavements are completely covered, children and older people continue to try & pass). Cars are also now mounting pavements to try & avoid the deepest section of the flood which is causing the water to be pushed closer to the houses.
