Pavement extended with no adequate drainage. Extension creates elevated angle so water is not able to run off to drain

Reported anonymously at 15:10, Thu 25 June 2020

I moved into 51 Crompton Street around 18 months ago, the pavement in front of my front door has clearly been extended at some point over recent years with zero regard for drainage. See picture, section highlighted in orange is on an elevated angle and forces water away from drainage point and collects in blue section shown. This is directly in front of both access points to the property (front door and alleyway) causing major access issues. When particularly heavy rain falls, water pools up to the brick line of my property and creates a 2-3 inch deep and 2-3 foot wide puddle. As you can see from the photos, recent resurfacing works have been done to the pavement extension (making the surface more watertight and higher) forcing more water to my property now than before.
