  • As a resident close to the drain outside 53 and 55 it’s is disgusting you have not been able to clear two drains since someone reported this in March. See the attached photos from October 2022 that I took. These drains have been blocked for two years, the photos clearly show the water runs off the road to a lower level and risks flooding the two properties these drains are supposed to protect. In the photos the water is up to the door step risking flooding the house that sits lower than the path. The path is below the road and receives all of the water run off in this area therefore it’s is critical you fix this asap. Any damages to property as a result of your incompetence in maintenance you can rest assured that claims will be made against the appropriate parties responsible for maintaining these drains! I also have photos from today to prove these are still blocked. Please note it is not just the drain outside of 53 that needs clearing, so does the ones outside of 55.

  • These photos were taken yesterday (26/10/23) as you can see both drains on the footpath have not been touched and still full to the top. The work has not been carried out and I hope tax payers money has not paid a company that has falsely claimed to have completed this job!?
