O/s 12 Cobham Close, Buckingham

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category by Kevin Watts at 12:35, Wed 23 December 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Every time we have rain, cars passing my property along Overn Crescent, hit a large puddle, that is often across half of the carriageway, from the kerb line on my side of the road, splashing water right across the footway and into my garden, causing flooding, with water coming across the lawn and pooling down by my front door. As you can see in the pictures, it has also turns my lawn into a mud patch. The reason for the water standing where it does on the carriageway, is there is quite a dip in the carriageway and with the kerb line being quite shallow in depth, any water thrown up onto the footway, just washes across it and into my garden.
