Surface water drainage overflowing, flooding gardens

Reported via desktop in the Parks and Greenspace category anonymously at 09:46, Thursday 14 January 2021

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

There is a small piece of land behind Empress drive and between the tennis courts. There is a surface drain that runs along the length of the gardens. This needs to be properly dug out or some proper drainage pipe to connect it to the rain water drain that is half way down the space. Every time it rains it floods all gardens and is causing damage to property.
