Flooding caused by water coming from Mulberry Homes fields

Reported via desktop in the Surface Water on the Highway category anonymously at 14:56, Thursday 29 February 2024

Sent to Rutland County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5649675.

Mulberry Homes took all topsoil off fields along Stapelford Road in 2023. Surface water now pooling up to four feet deep behind Willow Close and along part of the fields bounding Stapleford Road. Water 2 feet deep in pools on both sides of the hedge on the Mulberry Homes side of Stapleford Road, i.e in the field and along the road verge. Flooding onto Stapleford Road all along this stretch whenever it rains. PEOPLE HAVE TO WALK ON VERGES AS THERE ARE NO PAVEMENTS HERE. ITS NOT POSSIBLE TO DO THAT NOW. GO AN INSPECT IT WHEN IT RAINS . You should never have allowed planning permission for these fields as they HELD THE SURFACE WATER & PREVENTED FLOODING INTO THE VILLAGE. We have had worse floods since the fields were dug up for "archeoloogy" than ever before.
