Broken drain cover

Reported via iOS in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 14:54, Friday 15 April 2022

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Yesterday the drain at the bottom of the garages next to 51 Stonecroft Avenue was cleared, in the process this has left a damaged drain cover exposed. The damage to the drain cover is a risk to hedgehogs which are now an endangered species and we are working with a local wildlife rescue to increase their numbers in this area. This drain cover needs replacing to prevent any hedgehogs or other wildlife from falling into it.

  • 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.

    Regards
    Buckinghamshire Council
