  • CSC T.C - with the rainfall today, there is flooding across the road of Wood Burcote by Plum Cottage. There are concerns as drivers are not aware there is flooding due to the bends in the road. Requesting signage to be put in place to warn drivers of the situation. Called the hub but as the issue is an on-going issues and has not yet been resolved, please can signage be considered for safety

  • The blocked drains near Plum Cottage have still not been fixed!! Also, due to the ongoing issue with lorries using this route and frequently mounting the pavements, the latter are breaking up and are a health & safety risk.

  • The road has flooded twice again today. Rain forcast for tonight. When is NCC actually going to do something to fix the 3 problems. This was reported in February and nothing has been done to actually fix the problem. The village is a mess. This was reported by 9 residents today alone!!!

    The road continues to flood due to the drain inlet being inadequate for the field run-off. The current notice of this issue was logged some months ago. It's not going to need rocket science to come up with a solution (improve the drain inlet) it won't cost a kings ransom to make it happen. What is the hold up?
