Rainwater flooding of garages at 18 Chatterton Gn and 87 Longway Avenue

Reported via desktop in the Flooding/Gully/Drainage category anonymously at 13:42, Mon 18 September 2023

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5006020.

The concrete area of Public Highway outside the garage block slopes toward the entrance to the garage of 18 Chatterton Green and away from the drain marked, causing rainwater drainage into the garage of 18 Chatterton Green. From there it finds its way through the wall into the adjacent garage, entering that garage at a rate of one gallon per hour. It is presumably also draining into the foundations of 87 Longway Avenue, potentially undermining them. This needs remedying, possibly by installing an extra drain in front of the garage of 18. Water from the roofs of neighbouring garages also drains onto this surface, exacerbating the problem further.

  • Further examination showed an accumulation of silt under the rear of a van parked in front of the garage concerned (18 Chatterton Green). After using a spade to cut a channel through this silt I found water would now drain past the garage door to the front of the garage of 87 Longway Avenue, from where it turned and flowed into the gutter of the road.

    Cleaning of the street under the parked van would reduce the chance of a recurrence, but access is difficult with the van parked there. The van has evidently not been used for a considerable time, but is owned by the owner of the garage.
