  • Good afternoon,

    The problem is still in existence and getting worse.

    I am aware that last week, a highways team came and unblocked a couple of the drains.however this is not the sole issue. Due to years of not being maintained, the ditches are filling with rubbish, hazardous waste and weeds etc. I have spoken at length with David Wilson Homes who own the land within the woodland. They are adamant having researched extensively that the ditches are not their responsibility. Please can you advise me if you are to clear the ditches and if not, who I can go to, as it’s causing both the footpath and roads to flood extensively now and going into winter this will make the road very dangerous.
