Manor House Main Road Saltfleet

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 08:34, Monday 15 May 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 459029.

Outside the property there is a steep drop from the road with a gulley and drain. This drain is blocked and cannot cope with rain water. The property is a Grade 2 listed property and was under 40cm of rain water yesterday to the front of the property leading to flooding. I had swept the gulley and cleared all debris luckily the day before which helped in some way but there seems to be not sifficient drainage here. This is causing damamge to our property.

  • Yet again! We are under water!!! I have asked and had no reply about the work that should be carried out. The drain is not fit for purpose. I have had to cancel Fathers Day meal and stayed home to keep our little back up drain clear from debris. This really isn’t on. This happened after just 5minutes of rain .
