Peterborough City Council are investigating the ownership of the piped system located in the access road leading to Home Farm. There is a manhole in the verge outside Foresters House and from this point it is blocked down to where it joins the highway drain adjacent to the road gully.(adjacent to Hour House)
This blocked manhole in the verge only receives water from private land and conveys no Highway water therefore would remain a private drain.
State changed to: Investigating

The Manhole cover that is located adjacent to Foresters House takes private water from Home Farm an it was this manhole that was surcharging, the highway drainage system commences near to the junction of Church Walk, this said we investigated this concern and the system was simply overloaded with saturated ground water due to the unprecedented weather once ground conditions improved the system drained down and the surcharging stopped.
State changed to: No further action
