Footpath from Hampden Hall towards Aylesbury.

Reported via desktop in the Ditch issue category anonymously at 15:08, Sun 17 September 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5002645.

Where the grass cutters have compounded the grass the natural drainage towards the ditch has stopped. A channel needs to be made and then the puddle problem will go away.However,the footpath does need maintaining as it's overgrown with grass and it's becoming impassable.We can't even safely cross the road anymore as 3 'islands' have been taken away. This issue is constantly ongoing.

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.
