Blocked Gulley Drains

Reported via Android in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 13:21, Saturday 12 February 2022

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

ALL gulley drains on this road blocked and non-functional. Recent rainfall has show localised flooding along the length of the road and across the pavements.

I have personally reported this numerous times over the last two years, as have others. The stock answer of "we have a schedule and aim for every xx years" is nonsense. Your current schedule does not work, is not helping you catch up, and the residents of this area have to put up with this shocking level of service.

  • Thank you for your report regarding a drainage issue, which has been passed to the Local Area Technician to investigate.

    We know that an important part of any road network is the drainage system which is designed to carry water away from the road surface. Even when a gully is clean and well maintained it will only cope with a certain volume of water at one time, a sudden and heavy downpour can still cause flooding especially if the road is in a low lying area.

    The Local Area Technician will carry out an inspection within 10 days and order a repair if required.

    IMPORTANT: If you consider this to be dangerous or an emergency, please call us on 0300 131 6000
    Otherwise, by submitting the report online we will deal with it in line with our agreed timescales.

    Regards
    Buckinghamshire Council
