The drain at the side of the road is totally blocked.

The drain in the roadside on the A281, oppposite Hill House Lane is totally blocked. All the rainwater now floods our property because we are slightly downhill of the road. The problem is not obvious because the road itself doesn't flood. All the water now flows onto the verge then, like a river under the fence onto our garden. We have had a flooded garden for months due to rain and a blocked drain.

  • The council highways came out and checked it. They said it is not blocked so they will not do anything until it teaches a danger level. Presumably the water level has dropped dramatically in this drought.

    State changed to: Fixed
