Who to contact if road drains become blocked and start flooding.
Gullies and other road drains allow surface water to drain off the road or footpath. The gullies can become blocked by fallen leaves, other rubbish and tree roots. When they block, any surface water on the road or pavement is unable to clear properly. This can lead to large puddles and can even lead to flooding of the road.
We carry out maintenance on our gullies but problems can still occur. Once we receive a report of a problem we will add it to our inspection schedule. Response times will vary depending on the location and size of the problem.
If you would prefer to tell us about a problem by telephone then you can call us on 01792 843330.
