At the bottom of the track between The Firs and The Dell

Reported via desktop in the Flooding on a road/footpath category anonymously at 14:44, Thursday 22 February 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5615854.

This is an ongoing issue. Every time we have heavy rain this area floods. The drains are backed up with muck and the gullies and ditches are not maintained. We have reported this problem to highways previously. The water that has come down the road then ends up in our garden. This is really a simple matter of highways maintenance. Surely by allowing all this water to accumulate on the road it damages the road surface to causing more damage and cost. This is a repeat of the Saturday night/Sunday 17/18 Feb 2024

  • 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.
