Reported via desktop in the Flooding category by Graham Mawdsley at 10:47, Wed 5 October 2022
Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3869424.
Graham Mawdsley from United Utilities has attended site, the Highway drain is blocked causing the road to flood and the footpath starting at the front of No7. The flooding is on a bend and cars are moving on to the opposite side of the road to avoid the flooding.
The water is also affecting the gardens of the properties.
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.

We have carried out an initial assessment of the problem and we need more time to decide our next steps. Drainage issues can be complex and time consuming-matters and at this stage we are unable to give you any indication on timescale. We will update your enquiry once we have more information. In the meantime, we will keep the area safe through routine inspections. If you believe the location has become unsafe and is presenting an immediate danger, please call 0300 123 5020 or out of hours on 0300 123 5025. If you would like to know more about how we manage gullies and drains, you can find information here: https://www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/ highways_and_roads/ road-maintenance/ gullies-and-drains.aspx
