Stream is flooding over footbridge over footpath to Cold Comfort house.

Reported via desktop in the Flooding on a road/footpath category anonymously at 10:26, Fri 20 October 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5117103.

It is likely the footbridge/culvert has become flooded due to damming of the stream by the owners/residents of Cold Comfort as part of their recent hard landscaping to create a large pond. It has been noted that since their hard landscaping the stream depth rose by approx. 40cm and significantly reduced the flow rate during the summer months. It has also been noted that since this increased stream level the footbridge/culvert is generally water saturated.

As such, with both the regular flow water saturation of the footbridge/culvert and the over-flooding by the stream it is very likely that the footbridge/culvert will significantly degrade over the this winter,
