  • We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report. Although the incidents of carriageway flooding in the area are of concern to the Council this particular incident was considered a low priority at the time of reporting. Please note that all of our emergency crews were out on higher priority incidents elsewhere in the County. A full cleanse of the drainage system in the area took place on the 28/10/21 which only indicated 2 minor issues which we will consider investigating further in the future. The level of rainfall recorded during these flooding events was noted as significant and it is likely that the main cause of flooding here is related to the overall capacity of the highway drainage system being exceeded. Thank you for reporting this matter.

    State changed to: No further action

  • Photos of the extent of the surface water flooding on 31/10/2021. Hopefully it’s evident why we feel unable to accept that Stable Yard, part of The Green in Nettleham, was included in the full cleanse of the drainage system that took place only three days prior on 28/10/2021? Can this please be confirmed one way or the other? Speaking to local business owners and residents, we feel that Stable Yard hasn’t been adopted by Highways as originally intended when WLDC purchased Stable Yard from Dixon and Hogg in the 1970’s. A copy of this deed of purchase can be provided if necessary.
