Gully cleaning (road drain)
The council has improved its gully cleaning programme to help prevent flooding in the borough.
In a borough-wide operation, roads that are more prone to flooding will be cleaned more frequently. These gullies will be cleaned every three months, while all other gullies will be cleaned at least every two years.
Parking will be suspended in affected areas on the day the cleaning vehicles move in so please make sure roads are kept as clear as possible. At least three days notice will be given in the streets, and display notices and cones will be placed in the road the day before as a reminder.
The gullies will be cleaned as quickly and efficiently as possible and as soon as the work is finished any parking suspensions will be removed.
