  • Thank you for providing photographs of the surface flooding. With reference to your first report:


    This gully is due to be cleansed routinely during our cyclical attendance expected in October 2021. The water does subside after a heavy downpour which suggests this is gully is draining slowly.

    With this drainage work already scheduled there is no requirement to bring the attendance forward.

  • Our contractor has been notified to take the appropriate action.

  • Further flooding occurred following the heavy rain of the other day. The gully drain is quite clearly blocked. I have placed a long garden cane down through the drain cover and it just hits something solid. Having first reported the flooding I was told there there was not a problem following which I sent you photographs since when you seem to accept there is a problem

    Still open, via questionnaire

  • I have put that I 'do not know' whether the problem has been fixed simply because we have not had any heavy rain since operatives attended earlier in the week. I am hoping that the blocked drain has now been cleared and that no further occurence of flooding will result.
