  • It is no longer raining so therefore there is no flooding. This does not mean the problem has been fixed, it has merely gone away. The issue is chronic - ie it has been happening for a number of years - so i suggest that BEFORE the next heavy rainy season, the council investigates the root cause of this flooding, and solves the root cause.
