Section of road adjacent to the pubs carpark

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5116834.
The gulleys got cleaned yesterday, but the pipe that connects the gulleys to the soakaways are silted up so the water isn't making it into the soakaways. If you lift the covers to the soakaway they are dry, although also silted up to the top of the borehole pipe. Gulley bucket cleaning here is a waste of time if you don't fix the link to the soakaway the pots.
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.
