  • Reported and drains are still blocked. Street cleaning is required for leaves from trees to prevent flooding. Ignored year after year.

  • This was reported by myself also - the access for disabled is appalling as you can see from the pictures the road floods and I had to take my sons wheelchair in the middle of the road to go to school - it isnt just the drains some smart Alec decided it was a good idea to plant trees all down the other side so whenever there was work done blocking the side with the new flats again we had to use the road as the trees overtake the path - even during flooding we can’t just cross the road and use the other side

  • The council have failed to respond to any report of litter here of the leaf build up that will be assisting in blocking the drains and causing the flooding.

  • Footpath impassable on one side again. Council still haven't cleared leaves. Gullies further up street also blocked.

  • Still flooding on both sides when it rains. Recently both footpaths were flooded and impassable with all pedestrians including kids on the way to school having to walk in the road around parked cars. Council are now saying they aim to clear leaves/mulch by 13/12/22. Let's see if that happens and how adequately they do it given their appalling record. Gullies further up street blocked too.
