“We’ve already allocated £5million in this year’s budget for maintenance and upkeep but we listen to feedback from residents and have decided to add an extra £2million to target some of the areas causing concern.”

  1. To quote from the report: “The current known workstack of drainage related issues is estimated to exceed £20m. Many are complicated by the involvement of third-party land or asset owners e.g. Severn Trent Water (STW), the Environment Agency (EA) or private landowners.”

    So the £1.9 m (£100,000 is towards the backlog on Public Rights of Way) for drainage is less than 10% of what is needed.
