  • Why has this changed to investigating ? it has already been investigated and was awaiting work to be scheduled to unblocked the drains. This really needs to be done before the heavy rain returns and the on set of winter. Prevention of potential flooding is the key rather than trying to pick up the pieces after the event.

  • We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report however works will be undertaken by an off programme jetting scheme. Thank you for reporting this matter.

  • What is an off programme jetting scheme ? These drains are completely blocked hence, when we have heavy rain the water sits on the road. Given that the majority of motorists speed along this road, it is highly dangerous and an accident waiting to happen. I have reported this issue for safety purposes and to help towards the prevention of flooding. The onus to act on this firmly sits with you, should an accident happen, I will report the fact that I have reported this issue to you.

  • ‘Off programme jetting works’ are where we arrange for works outside our normal cycle of works. A job has been raised for this location however these works are not urgent therefore we can’t provide you with a timescale at this stage. Please be assured that when we create gully works we jet the gullies on either side to check the pipes are clear. Thank you for reporting this matter.
