Flooded road drainage not fit for purpose!

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 11:36, Sunday 4 October 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The whole road is flooded outside my property, the drains are backing up & there is toilet paper stuck to the side of our car! Which means it is foul waste along with rainwater. We have logged this complaint continuously regarding the drain problems at this address. I would appreciate an actual date as to when this is going to be addressed. Our neighbours have had to move from their property due to this incompetence! There is also a hole now in the middle of the road due to the road being dug up unnecessarily 2 months ago! I telephoned 6 weeks ago & was told we were going to be seeing somebody, only my partner was told, when you came to dredge the ditch past Number 1 Farnham Park Lodge, that you only fixed the drains further up the road past Spring Lane because a copper lives there!! This is totally unacceptable! I expect some sort of response immediately, in addressing this mater. Regards Julie Holden Unfortunately I can’t upload all off the photos so feel free to contact me on 07773065927 to meet in person.
