Southgate Sleaford

Reported via iOS in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 09:45, Thu 17 November 2022

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 437124.

Multiple blocked drains along Southgate (and Market Place, Carre Street, Boston Road etc) - high risk of flooding. This has been reported several times and no action has been taken to date. Clearing drains is not ‘Rocket Science’ and there can be no excuse for not dealing with this essential but basic maintenance work.

  • There is a largescale scheme proposed in conjunction with the District and Town Council’s to remodel the town centre. This will give us the opportunity to undertake drainage works utilising the traffic management and also changing levels and kerbing to improve resilience. Thank you for reporting this matter.
