  • We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report. A detailed investigation of the highway surface water drainage system already carried out across the whole estate showed that the issue is related to poor ground soakage and insufficient storage within the existing drainage system. The flooding of the highway whilst regrettable can only be mitigated by significant investment in drainage improvements across the whole estate and whilst there are no reports indicating flooding of internal property living space it is highly unlikely that the issues described will be resolved in the near future. Thank you for reporting this matter.

    State changed to: No further action
