Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3503213.
It appears that the drain taking the sewage water from Millbank Cottages has become blocked. It is now overflowing and running down the road towards Chapel Brook. It runs in front of a gateway to a field making the entrance exceptionally soft as well as the affected length of the verge. This problem has been ongoing for at least the last 2 years and presents quite an unpleasant smell and environment.
Thank you for contacting Cheshire East Highways. We have logged your enquiry and passed it to a member of our team.
Our teams are working hard to manage and respond to reports from members of the public.
We are currently experiencing an increase in demand of reported issues along with a temporary reduction in available staff due to Covid-related sickness and self-isolation.
During this time and until the situation improves, we will be prioritising those issues that present most risk to the travelling public. While we normally aim to provide you with a response within 20 working days, response times for all other reported issues may take longer than usual.
Thank you for your patience.
