Road drains problem Yaverland Close

Reported via desktop in the Drainage Structure: Blockage category anonymously at 14:23, Tuesday 5 October 2021

Sent to Island Roads 2 hours, 16 minutes later. Enquiry ref: 16207206.

Unfortunately this is the second time in the last couple of months that I have had to make a complaint about the situation in Yaverland close.

I understand that there are intentions to improve the drainage on to Brading Marsh. However in the short-term this does not help me. A drain in the road outside my house cannot cope with the volume of water coming off the bungalows either side of me and unfortunately my house takes the brunt of this as they all drain into a drain in my garden which goes into the drain in the road.

This drain blocks up resulting in my gutters and downpipes draining onto my drive and water collects by the front door and garage. This is not a minor problem.

Last night again the system could not cope with the rainfall even though it was a fairly short duration. This has now happened 5 times in the last 2 months.

Please will you arrange for somebody to come and clear the road drains because they are not doing the job. They are also having to cope with rivers of water coming down the Close from higher up in Culver Way and Meadow Way.
