The drains are blocked. They need regular clearing especially at this time of year.

Reported via mobile in the Flooding/Gully/Drainage category anonymously at 14:33, Thu 24 November 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3990460.

Although there are often cars parked in the way the council lorry with the hose needs to attend regularly to suck out the drains which are not only blocked by leaves but also silt. This causes frequent flooding down my driveway. It would be appreciated if this matter was dealt with asap. We do pay extreme amounts for our rates and of course they will no doubt be increased quite dramatically in the near future.
