We (no 10 the Warren) have complained twice now about the water problem outside of our property and that of the others. Every time it rains the water gathers outside of our property as there is nowhere for the water to go as there is no drainage. The opposite side of the road don't have this problem as they have drainage. Someone did come and inspect the first time(supposedly) but it was dry and there was nothing to inspect. This is why the photo proves how bad it is. Something needs to be done. Thanks

  • Thank you for your enquiry and for bringing this matter to our attention. We understand that you have concerns about the condition of the drains on Banbury Lane; specifically that you feel they are blocked and potentially pose a flooding risk. Whilst we appreciate your comments, we have carried out an investigation and can confirm that there are no immediate safety concerns evident; furthermore, the drainage system is on the opposite side of the road and any pooling water does not pose a risk due to them being set back from the carriageway. However, we are pleased to confirm that cyclic cleansing of the drains and gullies in this area will commence in the near future (within the next six months). In some cases, we are able to attend before this prospective time; however, at this time, we have no further information other than the timeframe given above.
