Main drain flooding my garden

Reported via mobile in the Ditch issue category anonymously at 20:22, Wed 10 May 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4539369.

The main storm and run off water drain crosses west street, and runs underground through my garden and into a ditch in the fields adjacent. The drain is blocked after my property, when it rains, the water comes up a manhole and floods my garden and next door.

Updates

  • 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.
