Opposite side of Henley road to “the orchard , Cothelstone and Havenholme

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 17:33, Mon 17 August 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

In times of heavy rain, the rain water coming Down Highfield park, makes it way on to Henley Road Where the various gully’s on both sides of the road can’t cope (these have not been emptied or cleaned through for sometime) This standing water then builds up to a point where it breaks over the kerb and dropped kerbs to cause the drives opposite to flood , at least 3 houses have had garages flooded in the past week (only a matter of time before the houses become affected) The pictures above show the blocked gully’s after a small amount of rain, obviously this becomes worse the heavier it gets . The Henley road after severe rain becomes a torrent, there must be an infrastructure problem
