From outside front gate of Wood View to corner of Brindle Lane

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 14:19, Monday 15 June 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Every time there is any rainfall, a vast puddle quickly appears outside our front gate, often stretching all the way across the road. During the very wet winter it was a permanent feature, but now, even with the dry weather, it appears regularly. It is a health hazard, as it's lead to increased mosquitoes and makes our steps very slippery as mud builds up on them. Also, with increased numbers of families with small children accessing Hogback Wood through the style directly opposite Wood View, there is a real danger that as cars change direction to avoid the water there will be a serious accident as this is a partially blind bend. Everyone in the surrounding houses is utterly fed up with this situation as it has been going on for so long. What will it take to have this problem properly addressed? We are logging multiple reports because we absolutely need to get this addressed as soon as possible, before somebody gets hurt. Thank you.
