The surface water drain runs into this hole on the front of my property which appears to be covered by a broken concrete slab rather than a proper manhole cover and I found someone had lifted this which could be a hazard.

Also can you please check it is draining properly and the water is not running into my property at 14 Scothern Lane, thank you

  • There are 2 french drains in my back garden which are built the same and aligned to the drain on the front in question and it appears the overflow from any rain water from the road could flow into them. Can this be investigated and confirmed please, thank you

  • We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report. This is a surface water drain which is due for repair and has been made safe. A larger scheme of works is due to be undertaken in this area later this year and this manhole cover will be included in this. We don't believe the drain poses a risk to property and appears to be running well so no further action will be taken at this time. Thank you for reporting this matter.

    State changed to: No further action

  • Thank you for making it safe.

    Can you please confirm if the overflow from this drain does / does not run into my property.

    Thank you
