Wood Lane SL0 OLB - Flooding / drainage issues

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 10:41, Thursday 28 January 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Wood Lane between Bellswood Lane and Langley Park Road is flooded. There were problems here 2-3 years ago with flooding and blocked drains. Some of the water was pumped away but the problem has returned. If the road freezes it will cause problems with vehicles unable to drive up the hill. Water is also flooding Knapp lodge and is coming up the driveway. Please can this issue be looked into ASAP and the drains cleared. There is a manhole outside Knapp Lodge and another further down the road. Please update me on the progress of this report. Thank you.
