In the last week Downwood Way has flooded a few times, nearly becoming impassable.
HCC advise that they have tried to access the catchpit / soakaway to clear the connecting pipes which are blocked, but due to the high water level they are currently unable to locate them to jet them. The weather is becoming dryer over the next few days, and when water levels start to drop and expose the pipes they will be back to investigate further so this should prevent occurrence.
Thank you to Cllr Carolyne Jacobs and Cllr Marge Harvey for raising and chasing this.
