  • Update to previous problem. Road drain still blocked causing major flooding to road, footpath and property. Now approaching property and causing grave concern. Who is responsible for cleaning out the road drain as that is what is required.

  • Road still flooded and path. New gully has not been installed yet was due to be done within 28 days of 12th November. Contractors arrived and started but were called away to another job to return the following week. This was approximately 4 weeks ago but have not returned. An update would be appreciated.

  • Road drains blocked AGAIN!!! Causing major flooding to road, pathway and driveway. All drains blocked causing muddy water to encroach our property causing grave concern and subsidence to driveway due to being waterlogged. New drain needs installing immediately as it should have been completed 4 weeks ago. Will be contacting Northants Council to have driveway relayed!!! HELP water now up to property!!!

  • Complete and utter waste of time reporting anything on this site. Been waiting over 2 months trying to get continual flooding sorted caused by blocked road gulley's. Fed up with disposing of brown muddy water and damage caused to our property by this permanent flooding. Dread anytime it rains. Paying Council Tax a waste if money!!!!!!!

  • The water is still flooding property and road and pathway. Cleaning gullies does not solve the problem and the drains are completely blocked. Householder had to have fire brigade out this week. THE SITUATION IS URGENT.

  • Had contact from contractors yesterday saying that they have no record of request for a new gulley to be installed outside our property. There is to be a meeting at the end of February to discuss flooding on the adjacent housing estate. Does this mean we are to expect another month of flooding every time it rains. This now getting beyond a joke. No response to any enquiries or progress to any end result and contradictions to items in writing. Service way below poor!!!
