Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4153522.
Pipes connecting ditches could do with a quick clearout to prevent flooding and owner of Fulmere House to be contacted to ask to stop pumping water from his/her property in to adjacent ditch which has continued apace for several days now
We know that an important part of any road network is the drainage system which is designed to carry water away from the road surface. As a general rule ditches along the side of the road are the responsibility of whoever owns the land on which they are situated, they should maintain and keep the ditch capable of carrying water away from the road.
The Local Area Technician will carry out an inspection within 10 days and if it is the responsibility of Buckinghamshire Council and a repair is required, we will carry out the work. If the responsibility is with the landowner, we will write to them and request they carry out the necessary work.
