Soakaway in recreation ground 10 feet from Forty Green Road

Reported in the Blocked drain category by Gerard Westmacott at 12:01, Friday 25 September 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Overflow from the pond in the recreation area is causing damage to my garden and driveway. The feed to the pond is restricted by a highways soakaway (put in about 1980) just inside the recreation area. It seems this soakaway and almost certainly the feeds to it are not working (clogged up) and the pond is overflowing into my garden/drive (68 Seeleys Road). The situation has got worse over last 3-5 years. Please call me - Gerry Westmacott
