O/S 81 Blackpond Lane

Reported in the Blocked drain category by Gerry Greene at 12:47, Friday 19 June 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

I have received a answer to the following submitted report number 40136263. The answer was not in my view adequate blaming the recent heavy rain. These drains have been blocked foe several years now and flood in normal rain circumstances. This is directly outside my property and when the road flows the water is fired across my property by vehicles passing. As stated in my previous complaint included in the above number this is a danger to pedestrians and as witnessed yesterday disabled persons forced into the centre of the road close to a bend. Please do not close this report this time on the basis of severe rainfall. It is constantly being flooded and requires investigation probably using CCTV and supported by tankering. The actual gully at the junction of Bybend Close has not been cleaned and is full of debris and mud as are many of the gullies along the road heading back to the Emperor PH. Should you wish to discuss this my Tel No is 07774816660/01753206954
