  • I work for Northampton Partnership Homes and reported the blocked drain on 15/9. I had thought I had reported it in May but don't think I clicked the right button to submit the report. Could I get an update on the drains as the whole lane by the traveller site gets flooded and children and residents have to walk with no footpath along the road.

  • I have been advised by highways that the ditch outside the site needs to be cleared and it needs escalating to nbc to resolve as they are the landowner.

    The drains on ecton lane cannot be cleared until this is done, can this be escalated to the appropriate person at nbc
