Lack of adequate drainage in Sunnybank, Marlow

Reported in the Blocked drain category by Keith Michael Baxter at 12:18, Mon 17 August 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The surface water drainage in Sunnybank is very inadequate. During the heavy rain last week, surface water poured off Balfour Place and into the gardens along the southern side of Sunnybank (house numbers 28 to 31). There are a few soakaways in the road but they were ineffective in dealing with the runn-off. This occurs every time it rains heavily. Please could this situation be improved.
