Main entrance and driveway to property

Reported via desktop in the Flowing water, no risk to life or property category anonymously at 19:41, Tue 24 October 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 476041.

I am writing in regard to the inadequate road draining resulting from the building of new properties next to 16 Backgate. The new properties were built on what was formerly 22 Backgate. There appears to be no gratings or gullies installed that would form the top part of the surface water drainage system that would then flow into highway drainage system. The surface water from Backgate road in front of these properties now flows on to our property and is causing surface flooding. I have taken a video of this should you require it. I would be grateful if you could rectify the problem before the road surface water causes more significant flooding on 16 Backgate.
