Flooding keeps occurring

Reported via desktop in the Road and Pavement Issues category anonymously at 09:50, Fri 12 February 2021

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

There is no drainage on the bend or down the lane on this stretch. The bend is the lowest point therefore water is building up and also flooding my rear garden which ends up holding the water as no drainage in place on the actual lane as my garden runs parallel to it.

  • Nobody seems to have attended or actioned any works still and after a bit of rain today it’s flooded the path already as no drainage at this point still .

    If we continue to have more rain it will begin to flood the rear of my garden yet again can I get an update or someone please contact me on 07771 683346 .

    There are drainage points on this lane so I do not see why this cannot be simply extended further round ?

    It’s also a hazard having the lane 2 ways rather than one way which would also be simple to resolve.

    I look forward to a proactive update

We can confirm that the council has tried to install new assets at this location, unfortunately due to utility services in the way the council is currently looking at a redesign to the scheme to see if any works are possible. We will provide a further update shortly.
