The path between Wickham bridge and Eastville park gets flooded and is practically impassable every time there is heavy rain. Considering the fact it almost constantly rains in England for about 7 months a year, this is clearly a pressing issue. This path is used regularly by cyclists and pedestrians, including people who use pushchairs and mobility scooters. There is no other way around for pedestrians without taking a massive detour. I can see the previous response to this from BCC has been ‘there isn’t enough funding to resolve this’. That is a joke and is absolutely not good enough. How much can it possibly cost to install a suitable drainage option? The lack of action over this issue is discriminatory to pedestrians as mentioned above and has caused me personally as well as members of my family (and I’m sure others) to make unnecessary car journeys. We are supposed to be tackling climate change, yet BCC appear to be doing nothing to help. This needs to be sorted as a matter of urgency. I’m sure ‘Marvin’ can find the money somewhere if he would just put a little bit of effort in.
