On pavement outside 31 Leighton Road Wing LU70NW

Reported via mobile in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 22:41, Friday 18 June 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The drain in the pavement is totally blocked, flooding the pavement and the water is getting closer to the front doors. This drain is never cleared, apart from by the residents, however I am now disabled and a wheelchair user and unable to clear the drain any more. I have already reported this issue, at least once, but nothing has been done. This problem has been present for many years

  • This problem remains and the nearby houses are likely to flood during high levels of rain. As a wheelchair user I am unable to clear this drain myself and have reported this problem at least twice. If the local authority fail to take action and my property floods, I will be taking legal action against them for negligence
