  • A responsible citizen provided some really helpful photos of the mud-filled drain in the gutter outside this poor resident’s drive and badly flooded road just days after BCC had declared the case closed, they having not conducted any work at all despite multiple reports over many months. I cannot believe that BCC has again just declared this complaint ‘Closed’ within a matter of days without even investigating. What on earth is happening here? This needs to be fixed urgently. I hope all citizens, residents and travellers continue to report this until remedial action is taken. The whole issue is miserable.

  • It is concerning that reports of this issue keep getting 'closed' when clearly no action has been taken. Photos were posted earlier today showing that the drains are fully blocked on one of the other reports of this issue (ref: 5469322), yet BCC then closed the report saying "no further action needed".

    On other reports of this issue, BCC have said "A job has been carried out but further issues have been identified. This will be added to our rolling programme for future repair". Please can you provide details of what work needs to be carried out and when this will be done?

  • Attaching the photos of the blocked drains from the previously closed reports. Also a new image of the lake from today (22/2/24), I saw other vehicles getting a wave that went higher than the vehicle, though didn't get a picture of those.

    To re-iterate what I said on the other report both drains are clearly choked with mud. Whilst a long-term fix may require significant work could that mud not at least be removed to provide some relief in the short-term?

  • I live at 330 wells road and am fed up with this ongoing blocked drain issue. We cannot get out of our drive on foot without the risk of being drenched after it has rained and for days afterwards. The drain on priory road is also blocked compounding the issue. I have reported the matter to the police who say its a council issue, I have reported it to a local councillor who is looking into it and I have reported it on fix my street and apart from closing the enquiry nothing has been done. Could someone in the council just arrange for someone to dig the mud /grit out and free the flow. I am happy to help with this if you are short of staff. It is only a matter of time before a cyclist or motor cyclist is injured avoiding this massive puddle/lake.

  • Here are some photos to show this is still an issue. These photos were taken after light rainfall - it's going to be much worse when we get a proper storm.

  • I am worried that this is a serious flooding incident likely to cause a serious accident it’s very dangerous especially for cyclists and motorcyclists who could easily fall into the road and into the path of busy traffic causing serious injury This has been the situation for many months and I don’t understand why calls keep getting closed?

  • Given the significant interest and impact of this issue could we have more detail than 'A job has been carried out but further issues have been identified. This will be added to our rolling programme for future repair.'?

    What job has been carried out? As already said this job hasn't attempted to actually unblock the drain. What further issues have been identified? What is the timeline for fixing them?
