Macdonalds Lincoln Rd, Glinton, Peterborough PE6 7JR next to the servcis at teh roundabout There is a dyke adjacent to the restaurant taking way all the water. The site is flooded as the dyke water levels are too high to drain the excess water away. An engineer has been on site and has identified the dyke as the problem area not draining from the car park. She said we own the land there and need to clear the dyke. The car park is submerged in water since 20.01.2021

  • This ditch was inspected on the 28th January a small self set tree was removed from the ditch channel, it was noted by the contractor the the outfall from the service area was quite low down as such once the ditch becomes partly full as its designed to do, which is to convey water but in times of heavy rainfall then to store it and release when the receiving ditch enables it to do so.. As such during times of heavy rain the service area pipe may have a reduced outflow rate, this was explained to the restaurant manager at the time.
