Large flood during every rainfall

Reported via mobile in the Ditch issue category anonymously at 21:27, Monday 1 February 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The section of road between properties"Barton Colyers" on one side of the road and "Hazel Cottage" and "Cedars Lodge" on the other side frequently floods badly during rainfall to the point that the whole verge and part of Hazel Cottage driveway is under water . This is because the 2 gullies outside Hazel Cottage and Cedars Lodge and the 1 or 2 weirs outside Barton Colyers are blocked. Bucks CC jetted the drains in the road last year but this did not clear these drains and they flooded again shortly afterwards. It will need a professional drain clearing team and equipment and some patience to actually find and properly clear the blockages, not a quick drive by 10 minute job.
