Works are well underway to address flooding problems affecting some properties on Foxwood Lane.
One property has been empty for over a year as a result of water entering the building.
A few years ago the pumping station pumps failed and caused chaos on the street. Automatic alarms were later fitted at the pumping station to prevent a repetition of that problem.
The current works don’t increase the size of the main sewer pipe serving the area. Lack of drainage capacity effectively prevents any further building in the area
