Several road drains have been blocked for nearly two years now. From the end of Aylesbury Road (HP225AJ), caused by constant building works, lorries shifting mud for new developments. The drains/roads have not been cleaned, now blocked solid along this stretch of road. The water from the road and footpath pour into my driveway and garden. The old oak fence posts have rotted away and now can't by replaced as the ground is constantly saturated/flooded. If this carries on, I will be taking legal action against the Bucks County Council to recuperate costs.
