Extensive flooding on private footpath.

Reported via desktop in the Gully/Drainage category anonymously at 14:21, Fri 22 January 2021

Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2495379.

The footpath outside our small row of houses (82-88 Woolston Avenue) floods every time it rains, there is simply nowhere for the water to go.

Of course, Storm Christoph dropped an unprecedented amount of rain, but something really needs to be done now, for some of us this is our only way out!

I suspect there is also a subsidence issue beneath the paving, as when I first moved in four years ago, it never used to flood right outside my gate, but now water gathers there regularly as well.

  • Not sure why you have closed this, just because the water has dried up does not mean there isn't an issue, this is going to keep happening.
