Lye Green Road, Chesham- outside 34
Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 14:13, Tuesday 15 February 2022
Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later
A drainage clearance vehicle currently worked along Lye Green Road clearing the roadside gutters and drains.
This has caused a major drainage issue, flooding the road outside my house, and subsequently my driveway.
Please could this be rectified urgently before it causes major damage to my property?
Many thanks Mrs Susan Teden 34 Lye Green Road HP5 3LR
Thank you for your report regarding a drainage issue, which has been passed to the Local Area Technician to investigate.
We know that an important part of any road network is the drainage system which is designed to carry water away from the road surface. Even when a gully is clean and well maintained it will only cope with a certain volume of water at one time, a sudden and heavy downpour can still cause flooding especially if the road is in a low lying area.
The Local Area Technician will carry out an inspection within 10 days and order a repair if required.
IMPORTANT: If you consider this to be dangerous or an emergency, please call us on 0300 131 6000
Otherwise, by submitting the report online we will deal with it in line with our agreed timescales.

16.3.2022. Update re Report 40185119.
This problem has not been resolved and is causing serious damage to our driveway.
Heavy rain is not the issue. This amount of flooding was never an issue before the drain clearance lorry worked along the road in early February 2022.
It would appear that the lorry has caused a blockage.
Please do not dismiss this claim again. Please send someone to inspect the drainage in Lye Green Road.
