  • A tanker truck arrived at 9pm earlier this week. The guys pointed out the blocked drains were not on the highways map system and they were not authorised to clear them. They made a cursory clearance of the drain but did not follow through on the work required along the length of the drains as requested as they did not have the correct equipment. This is a priority 1 request and with more rain forecast I want to raise this as a concern as we are nearly a month since the initial incident.

  • Sunday 26th July 2020. When will the drains be cleared outside this property? Although they are not on your map they are there and need attention! There is a grass verge between the highway and the pavement and these drains/gulley's run between the pavement and the grass verge. Please attend to this as soon as you can.
