Drainage ditch not maintained under LDA 1

Reported via mobile in the Gully/Drainage category anonymously at 15:06, Thursday 5 January 2023

Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 4091245.

Stating in progress is unacceptable this ditch is in such a poor state it is NOT compliant with the Land Drainage Act despite numerous claims of in progress it remains in an appalling state, not working and is putting water on to our land and adding to flooding it is simply gross negligence, failure of a duty of care, failure to accept that this negligence is causing additional flooding issues

CEBC have not touched this drainage ditch since 2002 if ever ignoring its duty under the land drainage act

  • 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.
