Constant flooding from road , drains and grips blocked

Reported via desktop in the Ditch issue category anonymously at 09:17, Thursday 30 September 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The installed drain on east side of road has been blocked since installation, the grips ( 7 off) on the west side have to take most of the water from the steep road leading up to the top of the Hale woods so we see a lot of soil and stones washed down as no drains exist on the hill. Recently hedge trimming took place and deposited much of the soil dug out ( by me) back into the grips blocking their use. I have tried to clear a minimum to avoid flooding of properties but it needs proper clearing before a heavy rainfall. 2 years ago these were blocked and my house, even though raised significantly from the road, was flooded at significant cost. I do not want to see this happen again due to poor drains maintenance
