3 drains between Kingshill Grange and Pine Cottage on Windsor Lane

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 11:47, Friday 25 September 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Following my report, ref. 40143315, I received a note saying "Transport for Buckinghamshire operates a cyclic gully programme and clearance will take place during this programme" Which is all fine and dandy but the cyclic cleaning has just been done!! The problem is that the machinery Bucks operates is not man enough for the job. These drains are full of clay which was washed down the road at the time of the water utility repairing a leak earlier this year. The mobile vacuum cleaner Bucks operates might be of some use for wet leaves but it is not suitable for clay. The notice I received was just an automated email response. Clearly no one at Bucks had taken the trouble to understand the problem.
