Dear Mr Jeffries,

Thank you for contacting Lichfield District Council,

I have spoken to one of our Environmental Officers about your issues, and it doesn’t spring to mind as something Environmental Protection usually deal with. Saying that I am not 100% clear whether the issue is coming from water coming onto your property from the highway/drains /ditches linked to the A38. It sounds as though that is the case.

I would recommend reporting to Staffordshire County Council as they are responsible for drainage and highway. I have copied in the link below for you to report this direct to them

If this is unsuccessful get back in touch and I will try again, but at the moment I am being advised it is most like a County Council issue rather than a District.

I hope this helps.

Kind Regards

Dear Sir/Madam

I am contacting you as the Executor of my late father's estate.

Alan Jeffries deceased

Fradley Lane

Fradley

Lichfield

WS13 6JP

Over the winter and into the spring while the property was empty the padock area has been covered with water for long periods (draining away during dry periods) and when the rain was at it's heaviest the drive to the property of Fradley Lane has been flooded.

This water comes from nearby ditches and highway drains. The water that was in the paddock soaks away from the ditch when high/blocked. The water that goes across the drive is when the ditch itself overflows.

I thought the problem had gone for now but recently a large down poor left water on the paddock and also left the drive briefly flooded.

The ditch is fed from the flyover over the A38 (fradley lane) and also adjoining ditches and drains from the A38. My father had problems in previous years that were rectified by yourselves. I assume the current problem may be related to the recent work on the A38 itself and the areas adjacent to the property?

Could you please look into sorting this ASAP please or pass this on to who is responsible? Previously it was not urgent but now that there is someone living there to look after the property until the estate is sorted and the future of the property decided?

As a result of the problem this water has drained into the properties ces pit and soakaway so something needs to be done ASAP please?

Regards

Lloyd Jeffries
