  • The map you have shown is not accurate I have requested twice now a formal flood investigation you have not carried this out. Lincolnshire county councils ditch feeds into my sewerage ditch not shown and another ditch which should not be connected and is not shown is also flowing into this sewerage ditch. NEITHER OF THESE DITCHES ARE MAINTAINED BY WITHAM DRAINAG as you have previously been informed. Please carry out a formal flood investigation and arrange a site visit as there are two ditches not shown on this map carrying the water from 9 square miles of hillside and the whole village which is trying to feed into my one 9 inch sewerage pipe. Please call me on 07837180523 to arrange a site visit.
