170 and 172 High Street

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 15:24, Monday 21 June 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Everytime it rains water does not drain away from the footpaths outside both properties. The paving is cracked and uneven and access to own property is difficult with the flooding that occurs and pedestrians have difficulty walking on this side of the pavement. This is worsened when their is heavy rainfall whereby the footpath and entry to my front path is flooded and unable to access property until the water has subsided. This has been ongoing over the past 8 years and never resolved. Furthermore, all vehicles passing through will splash further water onto both properties, not just the footpath but also windows too. Please resolve this problem by mending all the uneven cracked pavments and reviewing the drains
