A site meeting was held on Wednesday afternoon with an Officer from CCC Highways & Parish Cllr Bob Webster to look at flooding in the village. The meeting had a positive outcome and the following works will be taken forward:
The gullies around the location of the flash flooding at the junction of St James Road Gordon road and Lakefield Avenue will be cleaned.
Investigate the system between this area and the outfall to make sure that is working effectively. Will check the ditch to identify any issues between the outfall and the river More »
Best solution would be to try and get the gullies connected to a positive drainage system . This may not be possible due to existing levels which is why they installed them to soakaways when the estate was developed. Alternative option to enlarge existing soakaways. » Less

In August rain storms caused flash flooding in the village - Lakefield Avenue, St. James Road, Gordon Road and other areas were badly hit.
The Parish Council has surveyed over 90 drains/gullies and 80% of these drains are blocked and/or have vegetation growing from them.
Cambridgeshire County Council Highways have been approached for the drains/gullies to be cleaned as a matter of urgency.
We would urge residents to report any blocked drain near them to Cambridgeshire County Council via their website. More »
