  • Is there an update yet regarding the flooding? My husband has been outside trying to clear the sludge as our driveway is so dangerous, not only for us but for any people walking up the road and also passing cars.

  • On the 4th November this case was reported, but I have not had a recent update. I would be grateful if you could let me know if anything is being done?

  • We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report because this has been investigated previously and there is nowhere to install a drain and we are not permitted to discharge surface water into the sewer system. The previous householder was advised to have a gully and soak away installed on his own property. Thank you for reporting this matter.

  • I do not understand why no further action will be taken on this, even if we put in a soak away it will not take off the amount of surface water which surrounds this area. Why can't a gully be built into the side of side just beside the grass walk way? This would be the most cost effective and cheapest solution to the problem. here is so much surface water it is very dangerous not only to passers by as they have no where at all to walk but also to passing cars in icy weather. This matter is not closed as far as I am concerned.

  • We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report. There is nowhere to connect a gully into. The nearest open water courses are uphill and we are not permitted to connect into the Anglian Water Sewerage System. Thank you for reporting this matter.

  • I understand that you are not taking immediate action on this but I don't understand why you would be unable to put a concrete gully alongside the grass verge, which will run down the side of the road so that all excess waters will be diverted to the drain, to me this is a simple solution and also the cheapest option. You do not have to connect the gully but it must be laid. Please see photo above to explain the cheapest option.
