Work on a new £5.3million housing development has had to be delayed because of “unacceptable” drainage which causes flooding after heavy rain.

The reaction follows reports in Shinfield of a multi-million pound housing development having to be delayed because of issues to do with drainage. A spokesperson from Drain Response provides a statement.

Work on a new £5.3million housing development has had to be delayed because of “unacceptable” drainage which causes flooding after heavy rain. The development in Shinfield was halted after Wokingham Borough Council got involved earlier this month, while the delay will remain in place until the end of June unless the companies behind the project undertake the necessary changes.

The flooding problems became so bad that even residents close to the development were starting to take notice. “Most years when it rains it sometimes gets a bit boggy but the water never settled before,” claimed Sarah Webber, whose home backs onto the new site. “But this year there was definitely a big puddle forming next to the back door.”

Drain Response, a leading provider of drainage and plumbing services, takes a keen interest in reports such as this. A spokesperson provided this statement: “This report just goes to show how important drainage is for a site, and with just a small issue it could end up flooding the area and putting a hold on any building work.

“Now the necessary steps need to be taken to resolve the problem and ensure that it doesn’t happen again. Flooding issues like this can be repaired with the right expertise and equipment, and then the building work on the site can finally start getting underway again. It would be such a waste to let this issue ruin a development so the correct steps need to be taken by the building companies to avoid any disappointment.”

Drain Response is a London-based drainage and plumbing company operating a 24-hour service to people in London and its surrounding areas. They offer both emergency services as well as scheduled appointments to cater to a wide number of drainage and plumbing problems.
