There are 4 drains in cross street, the one outside my property is clear.The other three are semi blocked two completely.One drain cannot clear all the rain water in heavy rain resulting in flooding and dirty water is washed into my yard.I have to move my car to stop rain water going in it. When you come to clear the drains, some cones will need placing on the area the night before because cars from local businesses park over them during the day

The drain outside my property is the only one to get cleaned out I’ve lived here 6 years and the others get missed because of the parked cars

  • 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 Lincolnshire County Council these are not considered a priority at this time. A full cleanse of the drainage system in the area took place on the 28/10/21 which only indicated some minor issues within the piped system which we will consider investigating further in the future. We are aware that a small number of gullies could not be emptied due to the location of parked vehicles at the time of the survey but due to the extensive demand on our resource at this time there are currently no plans to return to the location to carry out off program gully cleansing. Please note that a cyclic gully cleanse is planned to take place later in the financial year. The level of rainfall recorded during recent flooding events was also 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.

  • Hello Did this cleanse ever take place ? Because the drains I mentioned in 2021 are still blocked How can one drain do the job of four? The road needs closing off with an advance notice to stop car parking and the road drains cleaned out properly.
