Blocked drain, mud, gravel and flowing water

Reported via mobile in the Blocked drain category by David Stapleton at 20:06, Tuesday 12 October 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

This problem has been reported twice before and is getting worse. The drains in Sycamore Dene are solid, the paths are over grown, the gutters are full of silt and a steam continually runs and washes debris down my drive. When it rains all the silt and gravel is washed down my drive. Please send regular road sweepers and empty the drains in Sycamore Dene. Thanks, David Stapleton

  • For 9 years I have cleared the gutter outside my house and the debris washed down my drive. I am no longer able to do this due to surgery. The silt will now build up and spread across the road. It starts to smell, go green and attract flies. The photos show only 6 weeks of build up.
