Every time we have an amount of rain the drains/soakaway cannot cope and the road and our property floods, we need the drainage in the road rectified and needs to be given funding and priority.

  • Considering their will be no planned works of a similar nature in the street as the drains outside our house are the only ones that flood due to an inadequate soakaway system which needs replacing or a new system put in.What has been done apart from delivering sandbags which is only a temporary solution.Has anyone bothered to come out and look and establish what works need to be carried out to resolve this problem as flooding is inevitable??
