Both myself no.16 and neighbour no.18 south view have build in extra drainage in our driveways to avoid rainwater flooding our garages. This has been an ongoing issue for years and worse when we have sudden heavy downpours. Our neighbours recently had their driveway reinforced with extra drainage as the wall to their drive buckled. We also noted The drains were cleared last week by the council and I know this isn’t the issue. I have photos and videos to show when it rains, water funnels down the road and the pavements from the top of south view but doesn’t track down other neighbours driveways as the pavement at the top of other neighbours drives is angled towards the road. When you get to our driveways the pavement is dipped cracked and slopes towards our drive so alot of the rainwater not tracking into drains along the road is being funnelled down our driveway. Block paving at the top of our driveway is now loosened due to the excess water and ends up in a large pool of water outside our front door and eventually into the natural soakway. Would appreciate an inspection of the pavement at the top of our driveways so you can see for yourself what I mean about the camber of the pavement aids excess rain water down our drive and not further down the road to the next drain
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.
