Ditch to the front of 93 Aston Abbotts Road

Reported via desktop in the Ditch issue category by Joanna Rose at 16:59, Tuesday 9 April 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5830613.

The pictures were taken on 28th March 2024. The ditches were FULL of water. Residents report that the water has at times overflowed the ditch, going down into their garden and almost reaching the front of the house. The water is stagnant, growing algae, due to the length of time it has stood without draining away.

Ditches to the east and west along the house frontages are in a similar condition. Also on the opposite side of the road. but no. 93 is particularly urgent.

  • 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. As a general rule ditches along the side of the road are the responsibility of whoever owns the land on which they are situated, they should maintain and keep the ditch capable of carrying water away from the road.

    The Highway Officer will carry out an inspection within 10 days and if it is the responsibility of Buckinghamshire Council and work is required, we will raise and order and have the work done.

    If the responsibility is with the landowner, we will not use taxpayers money to carry out the work, we will write to the land owner and request they carry out the necessary work on their land.
