Sprigs Holly / Sprigs Alley Lane, bordering Farthing Hall

Reported in the Blocked drain category by Robert Nikiel at 17:30, Wednesday 3 June 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

There are 2 soakaways outside the property which have drain grids. The soakaways have become blocked and are ineffective in channelling runoff into the soakaways, resulting in runoff and sediment into Farthing Hall. It appears the soakaways collect water and sediment from a gradual gradient over 400-500 metres and would need to be on a regular clearing schedule. Possibly, a more effective solution could be found to replace or supplement the existing arrangement, with less need for regular and expensive intervention. On behalf of Radnage Parish Council, I would be happy work with TfB to come to a more effective solution, as would the owner of the adjacent property.
