  • Outside Royal Oak Drains have not been cleared since I last reported the problem, they are full with soil. Rain has no where to go and covers road, deepest by pub, this leads to traffic on the wrong side of the road. Please be aware that no regular maintenance has taken place for a long time! The report's reference number is 437532. Please quote this if you need to contact the council about this report. Your response:- New updates on Outside Royal Oak We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report because this site has been attended to on the drainage cleansing programme since the issue was first reported and no drainage issues were reported back. Thank you for reporting this matter. State changed to: No further action Lincolnshire County Council Unsubscribe from alerts about this report

    ….they have not been attended to since I reported around 2 years ago.

    As the water has no where to go the whole road gets flooded.

    Think this should be a compliant now.
