This drain overflows whenever it rains and cannot cope with the already considerable amount of water flowing down the High street due to other drains further up also being blocked. The danger of flooding at the bottom is therefore increased and the damage to the wall of the adjacent cottage is causing serious problems
This has been passed to the Local Area Technician to investigate.
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. Even when a gully is clean and well maintained it will only cope with a certain volume of water at one time, a sudden and heavy downpour can still cause flooding especially if the road is in a low lying area.

We have now inspected the area and our assessment is that no action is required at this stage.
The issue reported will be added to a package of works for this location and will be addressed when we are next in the area.
