Surface water flooding outside property

Reported via desktop in the Ditch issue category anonymously at 22:13, Thursday 16 September 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Crews have been out to clear the drains on the street. However these drains then run under property gardens emerging in fields at the rear. The culvert that the drains exits into is completely overgrown and fills with debris and leaves during autumn. This has been missed in recent works (by the landowner?) over winter 2020/21 which concentrated on the stream south of the village. Until the intermediate drain between the street and the stream is cleared the flooding will not be resolved. The culvert is hard to find, please ask and I can direct.
