  • Even after a 24 hour period of dry weather a huge puddle of water remains, creating a hazardous situation with the footpath. Sooner or later a collapse may occur in the road. Then after a few showers there is once again a huge volume of water with no-where to drain.

  • Thank you for reporting this issue. The gully issue/blockage will be included in our forthcoming gully cleansing programme. As there is a limited budget, we have to prioritise high flood risk areas. Sometimes it is the volume of water that falls, and our drains are unable to cope, but the water eventually disperses. We will continue to monitor this on our routine inspections. Regards
