Drain at entrance to Orchard Cottage, opposite Stapleton Arms, is full of mud and plants are growing in it. Think it needs cleaning before the winter sets in. When is it due please?

This is an ongoing problem due to mud from farm vehicles washing down the road and this is the low point of the road.

  • We can't believe how quickly this was resolved. Within 48 hours, there was a chalk mark at the drain and it was cleared within 10 days. The Council kept us informed, via e-mail, throughout the whole procedure. Thank you FixMYStreet and NDDC.
