I have called Thames Water who deal with the main rainwater drain on the highway. The road is higher than the car park to the Henley registry office which means excess surface water will naturally run over the pavement from the road (Northfield End/Adjoining The Fairmile). The surface drain outside the registry office is not taking the surface water away and as such it runs down the incline of the car park and pools outside the front and back door of Court House Lodge. The tenant is sweeping the water away so it doesnt enter the property.

Spoke with Steve Harris from Highways.
Explained that surface water from road was causing flooding on driveway to Court House, Registry office and on Tuesday morning lapped over Court House Lodge doorway. (See photos above)
The road is now significantly higher than the driveway and water floods in and pools blocking the public footpath whenever there are heavy downpours.
The problem is worsened by dropped curbs for parking on the preceding terrace of houses and there being no gully/drainage channel prior to the Court House/Registry Office driveway turning.
This avoidable flooding risks causing damage to property and forcing pedestrians to walk in the road.
Steve Harris will be passing the matter on to Highway Drain Engineer to look for solutions.
