Blocked pipe or capacity issue

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category by Cllr Jane MacBean at 14:05, Monday 18 January 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

At this location on Cholesbury Road there are two cottages, Cherry Tree Cottage 1 and Cherry Tree Cottage 2, that sit at the lowest point. When it rains water ponds in the road. There is a pipe that is supposed to be carrying water away from the location but it is either blocked with debris or it doesn't have enough capacity. The pipe needs to be jetted clean and inspected in the first instance to ensure it's working properly. If that doesn't solve the problem it may need a larger pipe with greater capacity.
