Water and debris from Leaves Green continue to flood Blackness Lane

Reported via desktop in the Road, Pavement and PROW Issues category anonymously at 15:07, Mon 1 November 2021

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

I cleared the drains 4 times in the 48hrs. Drains and gullies at the top of Blackness Lane continue to be blocked because of leaves from trees not being maintained. Problem further compounded by debris washing down the hill of Leaves Green from the nearest small drain 200yd away (half the size of the ones shown) into Blackness Lane. Blackness Lane is taking all the water flowing downhill from the entire length of Leaves Green Road,

Blockage causing water run onto the pathway and then washing my drive away and flooding my garage 3 times
