Main Drains are blocked and not being properly maintained

Sent to Chichester District Council and West Sussex County Council 1 minute later

The main drain located outside of CMW Motorcycles, The Hornet is completely blocked and has not been cleaned for years. When the gully emptier comes it just cleans the two surface water drains located outside The Almshouse Arcade, 19 The Hornet and CMWs but never cleans the main drain. This is the cause of the flooding. The surface water drains fill with just a light shower of rain.

  • WSCC have been out to the drains and spent two days putting cameras down the drains and have now gone away to decide what needs to be done and get authorisation. Not sure when they will return at this stage.
