Road drainage causing flooding

Reported via mobile in the Flooding of a road or pavement category anonymously at 16:27, Monday 8 February 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2534157.

We are having a major problem with the lack of drainage on Cameley Lane Hinton Blewett. The rainwater currently runs down Cameley Lane from beyond Black Nest Farm all the way to a dip in the road surface at the top of our field a distance of just under 400m, at this point it then ponds on the road until it overflows into our land and drains down through our field to the Cam stream which runs at the bottom of the field. The result of this is that it makes the field through the centre and over a wider area at the bottom almost unusable during periods of heavy rain, and as the ground is clay it hold the water for some time. Obviously as the winters seem to be getting wetter this is having a major impact on us being able to graze this land I attach photographs detailing the problem and would be happy to meet someone on site to discuss and find a way to resolve this problem
