Ditch reported over three years ago. Bridge over ditch collaped and blocking discharge from 2 klargesters and flooding from road in ditch. Flooded 2 Church Farm cottages house twice and garden several times. Having to live with sandbags at doors all the time. Still not fixed after repeated reporting. Damage to property.
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.
