Blocked drains along the length of Towcester Road, Litchborough

Reported via desktop in the Blocked/Damaged category by Litchborough Parish Council at 16:42, Tuesday 9 February 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2536414.

I am writing to you on behalf of Litchborough Parish Council as their Clerk. The Council has raised concerns again about the state of the storm drains in Towcester Road, Litchborough. Following hedge removal and ditch culverting to the field west of Towcester road water drains off this field and down into the village. The drains become blocked with debris along the length of the road and the result is that water comes down the road and fountains up from the drain adjacent to number 6. This causes issues for the resident who is unable to traverse the large puddle at the end of their entrance. This is an ongoing issue and drain clearers have suggested that a length of drain north of number 6 is cracked so will continue to block. I gather you have been made aware of this in the past and the Council wish to request that the drains along the length of the road are cleared and repaired thoroughly to alleviate the problem. Please could you arrange for the task to be carried out. Looking forward to hearing from you. Kind Regards, Viv Hartley, Clerk to Litchborough Parish Council
