  • This is now causing a back up which could lead to houses being flooded

  • The water levels still high in front of houses due to blocked drain in layby. As you can see houses are not to far away and water is above drains and not clearing.

  • This area is still flooded thereby forcing pedestrians onto road or uneven grass island. It is a serious and on going hazard for visually or mobility impaired pedestrians. As main pedestrian route in/out of village remedy is urgent and necessary before someone is injured in this area.

  • The highway is still flooded, it appears someone has dug a channel from the footpath to a ditch running along the school playing field but the level is not lowering, possibly due to the old canal overflow pipe running under the housing estate into the flooded area. I have see a number of vehicles drive into the floods which could cause serious problems to engines, i appreciate drives should look first but there is no warning either! This has been outstanding for far too long now.

  • I am a resident in Roman View and have contacted REDROW HOMES as the overflow ditch next to homes is full and is a flood risk, they sent a Senior Quality surveyor out to site and I was emailed this update today... Following our Senior QS attending, we have been advised of the following: I noted the balancing pond on site has water raised high near to the top of the head walls before the hydrobrake. The downstream highway ditch which is adjacent to the balancing pond is full also. Downstream of this the highway ditch that runs around the side to the Elizabeth Woodville School field is also full. The ditch around the school field can do with a clearance likewise so can the highway ditch. They both look like they have not been cleared for sometime. The balancing ponds looks to be clear its backing up because it is being held back by the downstream offsite ditches. Once these are clear the pond should clear. The Levels of the plots on site are such Stratford Road is lower than the site and the drainage flow path in an extreme event will have water discharging into Stratford Road and the school field before it backs up to any plots on site. The Highway Street Doctor should be contacted and advised that there diched need cleared. Unfortunately I do not know who is responsible for the ditch around the school field.

    I will continue to chase up and find out who is responsible for school field ditch Thanks Everyone
