  • Last November I contacted you about the flooding in the entrance to our driveway that happens every time it rains, the water is running off the road at the end of the curbing where it meets the grass verge as explained previously on 2 occasions.

    It was first reported verbally 2 years ago but as yet nothing has happened, previously I have had to use a submersible pump to try and get rid of it, we have put a grid in at the end of our drive but when vehicles come past our gate the grid cannot cope so the drive gets flooded. Our drive is suffering and in the long term is getting damaged, our car brakes are being affected and our shoes by having to walk through it to get to the road.

    Could you please tell me when you will have a look at it and what you will do to solve the issue.

    Please see attached image of the problem that was taken in February and is the same now.

  • It is now August 2022 (over 2 years)and still nothing has been done or even looked at, there is even more water running off the road causing what is now getting to be a lake. Have noticed Highways have repaired the odd small hole at the side of the road further down but nothing of any size. We also note that a bungalow in the village had a smaller problem than we have and it was all re-curbed within a few weeks. Our problem needs sorting out.

  • Could you please supply a date asap, the water is getting worse. As there is so much water on the roadside and no curb in places, where there is a curb it is level with the road surface so it all comes into our gate, the drain cannot take it all and keeps getting blocked. The curb needs raising and running into the grass verge, at the moment there is a gap between the verge and what curb there is which allows even more water in. Our drive and paths are now getting damaged with all the water coming in so repairs are needed urgently. The entrance was marked out for repair but they seem to have washed off now.

  • Great news, we’ve had a look at the issue and we have now passed to our Highways Officers for the team to assess what can be done to resolve the matter. We’ll let you know when the assessment has taken place.
