Drains action to stop flooding


Rope Ward Councillors Margaret Simon, Ray Westwood and Brian Silvester have taken up the concerns of residents about the blocked and overflowing grid system on Coppice Road, Willaston between the junctions with Wistaston Road and Cedar Court.

Cllr Silvester said," This issue has been raised at the last few Willaston Parish Council meetings. Any heavy rain results in the road and pavements being flooded. We have asked the Cheshire East Council to consider the renewing of the drains as part of their programme of major road improvements. Action is needed to prevent this being a persistent problem. We have found that cleaning out the existing drains is not the solution. New drains are required."

Cllr Margaret Simon said;

"Flooding in this area and on part of Cheerbrook Road, during periods of heavy rain, has been a concern to  Willaston residents and Parish Councillors.  After making enquiries it transpires that the drains and gulleys are not silted up they simply cannot cope with the amount of surface water.  The only way to cure the problem is to install new and bigger drains."
