  • This gully and lateral pipe was cleansed and all working as designed, you may be aware that this gully outfalls into a gravel bottom soakaway chamber. Soakaway are only as effective as the ground they soak into and if this is saturated then they reduce their effect in draining the surface water. I was noted that the vehicular access kerbs were the old style of kerbs lain on their backs. it would prove beneficial if these were renewed with 6x5 bullnose access kerbs to give a minimum 25mm upstand which will keep the water flowing along the kerbline past these access points. Therefore i will in form the Highway Inspector if they can look into this with a view to implement in the new financial year (April 2021)
