Blocked slot drain outside entrance to No 20 Hartwell Rd, Roade

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 12:17, Mon 22 July 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 6 minutes later. ref: 1704737.

The slot drain outside No 20 Hartwell Rd has been blocked for a long time. In January 2018 I reported that local flooding caused flooding on our property but no action has been taken. Today the drain into which the slot drain runs has been cleaned out by your contractors but they had no instructions to clean out the slot drain. So when that is done all the muck in the slot will finish up in the drain that has just been cleaned out! Can you please action before any further flooding takes place.

  • Please be advised that no action has been taken on this drain. I am concerned that the heavy rains we are now experiencing that my property will be flooded again. Please advise when action will be taken. Thank you

  • We haven't had a huge amount of rain but the slot drain is overflowing and the main drain now also blocked. There us a lot of leaf debris as the road has not been swept for some time.
