Drains stink

Reported via desktop in the Blocked Drain category anonymously at 19:58, Sunday 19 June 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

There are 2 drains outside property 190 Wickham Way, these drains have been very smelly for a while now. The one furthest in the road is disgusting, to the point where we cannot open our windows. As you can imagine in this heat we need our windows open. I reported this problem a few years ago and was told there was no issue. The person who came round to investigate did it on a mild rainy day. When the weather is hot the smell is awful. It's not just these drains outside 190 Wickham Way, there are a number of drains that smell down this road. I know it's not my drains as I clean them regularly, 2 weeks ago I did them. as I'm typing this I can smell them, please sort this out urgently. Many thanks.

  • Only one drain has been marked with spray paint, as I said it's both drains. THE ONE FURTHEST IN THE ROAD IS ASLO DISGUSTING, It would make sense both being done at the same time.

    Many Thanks
