Ongoing flooding issue

Reported via mobile in the Flood water that has run off Land category anonymously at 10:33, Sat 21 October 2023

Sent to Shropshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 14125391.

As previously reported several times: Whenever there is a storm the overgrown culverts cannot cope with the water. The growth in culverts also restricts the water passing in the drainage pipes under the roads. The lane then becomes flooded with muddy water and gravel etc. This sits against our wall (possibly causing damage) and floods our neighbours garden which then rises to the front of their property. The drainage channels/culverts need to be cleared and improved to manage the volume of water draining off the fields with sediment and gravel. The culverts need to be maintained. This flooding prevents access. The flooding has also caused pot holes to appear and others to worsen.

The flooding has now dropped and the road cleaned up by my husband as it could not be left with piles of gravel and dirt/mud. It was a trip and slip hazard. There are elderly residents up the land who walk it every day. There is no footpath so the land has to be used by pedestrians, despite the speed of some drivers.
