Dear Sir/Madam We live on Heybridge Lane and are becoming increasingly concerned about the road flooding during torrential rain, or prolonged rain periods. It is resulting in road water pouring onto our driveway, flooding our driveway entrance, not to mention the mess which is left once the water eventually drains away. there are occasions when we are unable to access our property without wading through surface water, which can be a couple of inches deep. There are 2 drains near the property but as the road is on a slight descent the water from near our property must drain to the lower one and this regularly gets blocked. In our opinion the solution is for the installation of a further drain, situated outside our driveway, as the amount of water coming down the road gulleys is too much volume for the current drainage. Unfortunately trying to take a picture of the worst flooding would require us to get extremely wet. The pictures shown are the residue left after the torrential downpour this morning which ended around 90 minutes ago Please can we arrange for a survey inspection and discussion as to possible solutions. We await hearing from you. Kind regards John and Katie Barrett
