Missing Drain Covers

Published: 08 February 2019

Several residents contact us yesterday following the disappearance of some drain covers.

Having contacted our County Councillor early yesterday morning, I can confirm that the Local Highways Officer (LHO) has been out and 'made safe' the drains in question (a total of 15 across Woodside, Over Road, Home Farm Road and Hattons Road). Cones have been placed in them as the only way to make them safe, so if you notice any missing, please let me know as soon as you can.

These will be repaired, as a matter of urgency, but as the majority of drains are a non-standard shape, these covers need to be manufactured.

I can't praise the support enough, that we have had from our LHO and hope you will bear with him, while he arranges for these to be fixed (hopefully within 3 weeks).
