Blocked road drain

Reported in the Flooding or standing water on road category anonymously at 13:09, Fri 21 August 2020

Sent to Warwickshire County Council less than a minute later

41 Shrewley Common CV35 7AN During the various downpours earlier this week I together with my neighbours at 43 Shrewley Common experienced significant flooding to our garages - the first time it's ever happened to me.

Clearly the weather was exceptional but not unprecedented and our difficulties were exacerbated by the fact that the road drain between our two properties wasn't coping and feeding water back down the drives. While that in part would have been down to the extreme weather it was very noticeable looking up and down the road that ours was the only drain with it's own lake covering it.

I don't know when the road drains in Shrewley Common were last pumped out but it feels an exercise that is now due / overdue.
