  • This was not, and still has not, been fixed. It is still jam packed full of mud. Recent rain has flooded the footpaths and surrounding areas once again.

  • This is the second time now that I have to reopen this same report as the issue has not been fixed. I checked this morning, it is still jam packed full of mud. I have attached a photo taken this morning.

    The recent heavy rain caused localised flooding in the area and this completely blocked drain is, without doubt, contributing. Having had this report for over three months now and not having resolved it is negligent. The issue needs resolving ASAP before damage to property is caused.

    Thanks
