A Bucks road has flooded again – and is “getting worse each year”, it has been claimed.

Mr Richard Nye reported recent flooding on Gorelands Lane in Chalfont St Giles, adding he has been “banging on” about it to Bucks Council for a long time.

The 84-year-old author said the road had become “almost impassable” recently and that the water “stays around longer year on year”.

In response, Cllr Jackson wrote: “The Gorelands Lane drains were cleared recently but it’s made little difference.

“I’ve got it listed with the capital drainage team for a complete replacement of the existing drains.

“Just waiting for guidance on timing for that work.”

Mr Nye also tweeted a picture of a van driving through a flooded Gorelands Lane with water spraying high from each side.

“A nice sunny day today in Gorelands Lane,” he added.

Speaking to the Local Democracy Reporting Service (LDRS) he said: “We are long-time residents of Gorelands Lane and I’ve been banging on about the flooding for a long time and it’s getting worse and stays around longer year on year. Bucks Council are certainly aware.”

Steven Broadbent, Cabinet Member for Transport, said: "We are aware of intermittent flooding issues on Gorelands Lane. To help tackle this, in January we sent a super sucker machine; in July a new road surface dressing was applied; and then in September the gulleys on the lane were cleansed. We're also planning drainage improvement works on the lane in the near future.

"In addition to the above work, our Highway Inspectors and Local Area Technicians will continue to closely monitor and inspect Gorelands Lane for any potential flooding issues."
