Blocked drain - NOT AS MARKED ON YOUR MAP. Causing flooding, degradation of land and danger to livestock

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category by Olivia Docker at 05:54, Thursday 30 April 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2101052.

Blocked drain is in line with the end of the last property in Home Farm Close but on the Cottesbrooke Road side - not as marked on your map. Everytime it rains the drain floods and is degrading the land, causing potholes in the grass which are dangerous to livestock as they enter and exit the field. This has been a problem for over 2 years now and needs fixing.

  • The problem is flooding from the manhole cover rather than a drain cover. Consistent flooding every time it rains.

  • Hi I reported to you last year the fact that all of the drains are blocked from Ash Tree Farm to the top of the hill towards Brixworth, I was told that these would be cleared last year but they were NOT and they still do not work. All the water runs down and ponds at the foot of the hill. Some time soon there will be a serious accident as vehicles either hit the water at speed or swerve to miss it. The issue I suspect is the drains into the ditch as well as the drains themselves are completely blocked.
