  • After last night's rain (Feb 1st), flooding has occurred outside no.78 with rain water up to the front door. Milder flooding on the opposite side of the road also due to a blocked rain

  • Further flooding this weekend on both sides of the road. This was before the heavy rain in the afternoon. This does require urgent attention as people's houses are at risk of flooding.

  • Each heavy rain shower is making the situation worse. Both drains (one either side of the road) are blocked/broken. Residents are now having to resort to using sandbags to protect their properties. Surely this should be a priority when blocked drains are threatening resident's homes with entirely avoidable flooding.
