  • It appears that the drain remains blocked and, despite efforts, there hasn't been any response from LCC regarding this issue. It's possible that they are preoccupied with other matters, which might be causing a delay in addressing local concerns like ours.

  • The situation regarding the obstructed drain on Toynton Lane remains unchanged, with no improvement noted despite previous reports. Regrettably, there has been a lack of acknowledgement or response from East Lindsey County Council concerning this matter. It is conceivable that the council is preoccupied with various issues, which may account for the delay in addressing local concerns such as this.

    This persistent problem continues to pose potential risks and inconveniences for the residents of Toynton Lane. Obstructed drains can lead to the accumulation of water, which, particularly during periods of heavy rainfall, can result in flooding and damage to adjacent properties and roads. Furthermore, it creates unsanitary conditions that could negatively impact the health and well-being of the local community.

    Given the critical importance of maintaining public infrastructure and ensuring the safety and health of the community, it is imperative for East Lindsey County Council to give priority to and address this issue without delay. It is hoped that by drawing attention to this matter once again, the council will act swiftly to resolve the obstruction of the drain on Toynton Lane, thereby alleviating any potential hazards and reinstating normalcy for the residents.
