Desborough Park location : Flooded path at Desborough Rec between the two bridges

Reported via mobile in the Park category anonymously at 07:08, Thursday 22 February 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council 59 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 5612823.

Flooded path in Desborough Rec between the two bridges. This issue has been never fixed and keeps happening with small amount of rain. It completely cuts off the path, making extremely difficult to walk children to the main school in the area and also unable to use the recreational facilities due to this matter. I would appreciate someone could help with this issue

  • If the flooding is caused by a water leak we will report it to the relevant water company, who are responsible for water leaks.

    There are occasions when flash flooding overloads the drain/gully, even when a drain/gully is clean and well maintained it can 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, this generally clears away over a matter of hours.

    The Highway Officer is only able to inspect the drain when the water has cleared away, this will be done within 10 days and if required, an order will be raised to clear the drain.
