Heavy rain leads to flooded roads.


Cllr Brian Silvester, Willaston and Rope Ward Councillor, is calling on the Borough Council to clean drains out more regularly to prevent flooding and to take action against landowners whose actions makes the likelihood of flooding more likely.

He said," In the last few weeks there has been flooding in Eastern Road, Gresty Lane and Rope Bank Avenue . Parts of Eastern Road  had to be closed for a while because the flooding was so bad. If the drains were cleaned out more regularly this flooding would not be happening. Also off Gresty Lane, the land adjacent  to the road has been artificially heightened, without planning permission, and the Council  and the Environment Agency seem reluctant  to take action.

During the winter the lying water on the roads is dangerous because it freezes and can lead to  car accidents and pedestrians slipping over."
