The drain collects rain water from the road and is supposed to prevent the water pouring onto the driveway of number 32 but even the slightest amount of rain blocks the drain. With heavy rain water pours onto the driveway. The drain is situated on the Council owned grass verge where it borders the front garden of the property. I have only recently noticed the issue.

  • You stated that the drain would be cleared in April 2021 but it has not been. It is still blocked and with the current rainfall the water is yet again spilling out over my driveway. Particularly annoying as it is muddy water swilled off the muddy road where the soil is being moved in convoy past our house every day due to the Kettering East development building work.
