5222551. This was my original query for a blocked drain and two sunken drains.

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 16:20, Monday 20 November 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5233888.

Drain one keeps throwing up black stuff. On my original report 5222551 you say not your problem but Thames Water have looked at it on their map and say its a council issue? Two drains nearby have manhole covers on and have dropped and the council have been out once to see this a year ago. Put a barrier around it and never came back? Can someone call me to discuss as lots of people in this area using the playing fields plus the club pays to lease this land which is with the council? Hope someone can help us resolve ongoing problem. I am also contacting Land Registry too as you suggested, its just odd when the council have worked on this in the past. Thank you. Helen Weston

  • 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.
