    West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper is urging residents across the constituency, but particularly those in flooding hotspots, to report blocked drains and gullies to Lancashire County Council.



    With increasingly frequent flooding incidents, MP Rosie has been acting upon residents’ concerns about blockages and the lack of cleansing carried out in certain locations.

    In correspondence with LCC, it was confirmed to Rosie Cooper MP that routine gully cleansing no longer take place across all areas.

    Priority ordering now means some gullies are cleansed on a 12 or 24 month routine, with many only on a response service.

    West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper said: “Residents from across the borough are regularly contacting me to raise their concerns about flooding in their local area and the lack of gully cleansing on their roads.

    “Lancashire County Council have confirmed to me that they now clear drains less often than they used to, and for many they don’t even check them now unless residents request them to do so.

    “While I am wholly dissatisfied that this is an acceptable form of gully and drain maintenance, I am encouraging residents to report each and every time they see a blocked gully to ensure that LCC respond, investigate and clear.

    “Blocked gullies and drains can only add to flooding issues and concerns of my West Lancashire constituents so the more we can report the better and more regular service we can expect.

    “Reports can be made to Lancashire County Council’s Highways Department by phone on 0300 123 6780 or online through the ‘Report It’ service at https://www.lancashire.gov.uk/roads-parking-and-travel/report-it/.

    “Regular reports of specific gullies can then lead to them being added to LCC’s routine schedule.”

    i had to laugh at this....our road gulley drain was constantly blocked, i reported it many times...when i came home i found lancashire cc decided to tarmac over our drain...i suppose its easier than cleaning it....but now the water just floods the propery opposite....no one really cares nowadays....
