Storm Drain blocked and water coming up through the ground

Reported in the Flooding or standing water on road category by John Clayton-Wright at 19:01, Thursday 3 January 2019 using FixMyStreet Pro

The storm drain that runs down the road is blocked under my drive entry, and is forming a spring that is undermining my drive and presumably your road. It has been like this for the last five years and need doing now as I have to replace my drive but cant until this problem is solved.

  • That is extremely unhelpful as the water is clearly storm water not fresh water, so is the responsibility of Warwickshire County Council. I cant help feeling this is just a system to keep people busy while the council sits back.

  • Warwickshire County Council has received your report which will be reviewed accordingly. There are no automatic updates to the status of this report - this is something we are working on as part of the improvements to fault reporting.

  • The reply posted by the council is obviously generic and does not give me confidence that my issue has even been considered. A personal reply would be preferable. Therefore it is reasonable to give the council 10 days notice to come up with a plan especially as they have known about this for at least five years now. If I do not receive a substantial update I will pursue this thorough the Small Claim Court for damage to my drive and entrance way caused by this unrectified fault.
