Flooding outside my house

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category by Steve West at 11:45, Wednesday 16 June 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

ALL the drains in Sycamore Road from the roundabout to Chesham Bois have grass growing out of them so take no water. Rain forms a river which flows and floods Grimsdells Lane. Traffic causes waves to enter my property threatening serious flooding. You say gulleys are cleared 3 yearly but this does not happen. I have lived here 39 years and it has been done about twice!! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE REMOVE THIS FLOODING THREAT AS WE LIVE IN FEAR OF RAIN.
