Latest Update on “Flooding” on St Helens Lane

The latest update from Officers is:

“I have done work in this general area before and the upshot is that the drains are less than adequate to cope with long periods of wet weather.

I have the CCTV team doing some investigation at the moment so I will ask them to survey this street to get an idea of what is going on underground.

I suspect the gullies did outfall into adjacent ditches many years ago, which have now been removed from previous development work and now we have poor soakaway arrangements.”
