Oakwood House

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category by Bill Garrad at 17:12, Wednesday 21 October 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

In the last 3 years I have suffered on numerous occasions flooding to my driveway and garden not previously experienced. I have had water depth above 300mm which has damaged electrical switches and junction boxes causing expensive repairs. The water level seems to increase on each new flooding and is getting closer to entering my home via the front door. The water is flooding into my property from the roadway due to the two drain gratings being unable to take away the water on the roadway and on some occasions the water is coming from the drains. This needs urgent attention please.
