Back garden of house 1A

Reported via desktop in the Flooded subway category anonymously at 17:02, Sat 1 April 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4386399.

I am getting bad flooding in my back garden resulting from an underground drainage pipe being blocked and water escaping from a manhole. The water is rain surface water from the nearby road, the drain for which run across my property. Please advise Dean, who is the technician that is aware of the local situation. He jetted and camera surveyed the pipes in July 2022. He advised the pipes should be on a 6-month clearance program but it has now been 8 months and the flooding problems have returned. Thank you.
