  • We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report because this is not Lincolnshire County Council Highways maintainable liability but, a Riparian Ownership and therefore the owners of the properties whose gardens that back on to this dyke are responsible for the maintenance. Thank you for reporting this matter.

    State changed to: No further action
