A review of all regularly flooded areas by the council is long overdue. It is strange that we have only recently seen evidence of gully cleaning vehicles in the district after years of neglect.

Thank goodness, road flooding is being investigated. Let’s hope they look at Castle Hill, opposite Greendale Lane.
Slightest downpour and water fills the dip .
20 metres long x 15 meters wide and a foot deep. Not enough grids, no Kerbstones .
It’s dangerous as vehicles speed down the road towards Prestbury and realise what’s there.
Let’s hope this along with all the other flood points get sorted out. Fed up of short term sticking plaster fixes.
