Updates

  • 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.

  • Update

    We have investigated the issue reported and found that it is on private land, we cannot use public money to resolve issues on private land, we can only use the power we do have under Section 154 (1) of the Highways Act 1980, to advise the owner/occupier of adjoining land they are required to carry out work on their land so as to remove the cause or likelihood of danger, obstruction or interference to the users of the Highway (footpath).

    In most cases the work is carried out very quickly by the owner/occupier, but in some instances this can be a lengthier process but be assured we will follow due process to ensure the work is carried out.

    State changed to: Closed
