We live next door to the gulley at Rock View cottage. Mottram Rd. Alderley Edge . Since the gulley outside Edge View Cottage , was cleaned in May 2022 , i.e. for 3 and a half months ,we have had a leak of water ( including discharges from septic tanks) running down our drive next to the road , and causing a health hazard. This occurs even in the very dry conditions over July / August but is much worse in periods of rain. The gulley discharges into a culvert under the road ,carrying water and discharges from the Edge and houses , and the cleaning must have caused a blockage in the culvert , causing the leak pictured . Re- examination of the gulley and cleaning and jetting would solve the problem . It would help greatly if we could be notified when the contractor comes , in order to discuss the issue further .

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.
