Blocked Drain below School and before Bowhill

Reported via desktop in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 19:53, Tue 17 January 2023 using FixMyStreet Pro

It seems water is continually running from the land bordering the school on Northampton road, I know this cannot be stopped. But it then runs across the path then down the road gully. However the first drain it meets is blocked with leaves so the water runs on down to Bowhill where it collects as a large puddle.

  • Water & sludge running down the footpath, after wet weather this should not happen. Cannot use footpath when the sludge is covering it. Please add some drainage to sort the problem out. This has been happening for a couple of years. I contacted my local councillor regarding the issue and extra drainage was being looked at - this was over 3 YEARS AGO!!
