Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later.
Council ref: 4168926.
member of PC has advised that a member of the public has advised that the occupants of the property have installed new downpipes which lead to a channel that they've dug across their garden that runs up to the boundary of footpath and will discharge on to the footpath. Can we inspect and advise, concerned about safety as the weather gets colder
We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report. Whilst it is not a permitted act within the highway it is recognised that this particular practise has been historically accepted under certain circumstances. An officer has inspected the location and all the surface water from this property's driveway has also been draining onto the footway for some considerable time. Please also note that historical roof water down pipes are present on a number of properties along High Street. Should the situation be considered hazardous in the future then further action may be considered. Thank you for reporting this matter.
State changed to: No further action
