    From: Hannah Fajobi On Behalf Of Graeme Kane Sent: 20 January 2021 10:40 To: LEADSOM, Andrea Cc: complaints Subject: RE: Ms Brenda Gwynne, 103 Main Road Middleton Cheney Banbury OX17 2PD

    Dear Andrea Leadsom MP,

    Thank you for your letter of 29th September 2020 on behalf of your constituent Ms. Brenda Gwynne regarding drainage on the highway outside her property at 103 Main Road in the village of Middleton Cheney, South Northamptonshire.

    Unfortunately it would appear that this issue can only be solved by the installation of a completely new drainage system on Main Road so that repositioned rainwater gullies can be installed on the highway and at the back of the footway to catch any excess water during future downpours. In the longer term this particular scheme can be considered by the Capital Highway Engineering Projects department at the relevant local highway authority.

    However in the shorter term Northamptonshire Highways could tarmac patch the back edge of the driveway, which may help but also regrettably would only level the area of concern and depending on the amount of deluge it might not stop all or any rainwater water running down the driveway. In addition to this if there is any increase in the height of the dropped kerbs across the front it is very likely that vehicles accessing the property could become grounded on the incline. As I am sure you will realise this is not an issue that can easily be resolved with simple remedial action.

    We would be happy to arrange for a site meeting once the National Lockdown restrictions have been removed and in line with any other Covid restrictions that may be in place and should your constituents wish for this to happy then please ask them to make contact with us and once we are able we would be happy to arrange a suitable meeting to discuss matters further.

    Kind regards, Graeme
