The balancing pond 4A overflow gullies are causing flooding and require digging out.

The balancing pond 4A is opposite my property to which one the overflow runs under the road to the gullies running parallel to the road and through my land.

At the point where the overflow passes under the road and into the gullies, none of it has been dug nearly deep enough to deal with the amount of water we have been getting in the winter months and therefore floods the whole garden every year bringing with it rubbish including those plastic tree protectors which i've picked up about 30 in my garden.
