Blocked gully drains outside house number 1 and 7 of Ash Grove BR4

Kerb-side gully drains outside house number 1 & 7 of Ash Grove are blocked with silt/debris. When heavy rain falls, water cannot drain so increased volume of water travels down the incline of the Ash Grove towards Croft Avenue. On Monday evening, when heavy rain fell, the road and pavement on Croft Avenue were under water as was my driveway. At one point, my driveway flooded with over 4 inches of water, covering my house air-brick and very nearly reaching the top of my porch step which would have meant water entering my property. Please can you clear the drains on Ash Grove to try to assist with the drainage of surface water so reducing the flooding risk to my property? Thank you.

  • 1660059 Please can you give me an update on this incident? The drains continue to be completely blocked. The drains in question have orange spray on them. I am concerned at the density of parking in the area, that may well reduce access to the drains. Often people park over the drains so no access will be available. Can you tell me if this has been addressed? Heavy rain continues to be forecast and I'd rather not be flooded again
