Currently any excess surface water has no where to drain off to apart from one tiny drain tucked away in a corner just shy of the camber in the road which is resulting in that drain effectively not being fit for purpose and effectively redundant. This inadequate road drainage to this part of White Horse Close has resulted in flooding to properties. Surface / Rain water tends to follow the curve and gradient of the road, unchallenged and cascades down into the Courtyard of The Barns. This happens every time there is rainfall which is more than just normal drizzle. Please can you look into installing a solution to eradicate this happening in the future.
