Water is flooding down Sheep Street and the drains are not coping with the water (May require cleaning out) the water is then flooding into Tennis Lane where the drain cannot cope with the water and is flooding onto to my drive and then the water has come into my garages at Home Close Tennis Lane, this is not the first time I have reported this problem, Please can something be done to elevate this problem.
This 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.

We have now inspected the area and our assessment is that no action is required at this stage.
The issue reported will be added to a package of works for this location and will be addressed when we are next in the area.
