This corner of the open space, commonly referred as Three Hills, regularly floods. This is a historical issue and it affects the footpath. There may once have been a pond here. Currently Anglian Water have been renewing a main water pipeline past this location, which is under the jurisdiction of Buckinghamshire Council. They intend to earth-fill the pond and reseed it, but their chief engineers tell me that this will not solve the problem in the long term, as this is a naturally wet area. They are willing to provide some drainage to alleviate the problem and told me they are planning to email you with this in mind. The obvious place to drain into would be the ditch and culvert on the other side of the path, but these are currently completely overgrown. Please give this offer some attention, as Anglian Water currently have the machinery on site to do this work while they are making good the location after their pipe laying work.
This has been passed to the Local Area Technician to investigate.
If the flooding is caused by a water leak we will report it to the relevant utility company to repair.
