Grates are so wide

Reported via mobile in the Other public drainage issue category anonymously at 09:44, Tuesday 28 June 2022

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3629700.


We are suffering with the drain that is just outside of our drive

We have four young children and the drain has huge gaps and causes us as parents anxiety

It’s extremely susceptible to items dropping in we have already lost almost £200 worth of items to a drain and it’s just very worrying now

Especially with car keys house keys and just concerned the children drop their items down

Can we please change the cover to a drain cover with narrow slates

I would appreciate this being changed asappp

  • Unfortunately this gully cover along with all the other gully covers in Park Farm and throughout the city are D400 BS standard cover and frames, these are manufactured to with take the maximum flow rate of surface water through the open slots, they are designed as such to minimise the flood risk aspect, therefore these can not be replaced we would just ask that you are vigilant when near to the gully covers.

    State changed to: No further action
