  • An inspection of the Road Gullies was carried out today (17th August 2020) this inspection found all gullies free from detritus and water levels down below the outlet pipe work. Our Highway gullies outfall into the Anglian Water surface water sewer located in the road and this in turn outfalls at the side of number 14 into the open watercourse at the rear of number 14, it was reported the watercourse was in full flow as such restricted the Anglian Water Outlet which in turn restricts our gullies draining leading to the road flooded, this simply is just too much water in a short spell leading the the system reaching capacity quickly.

    State changed to: No further action
