Flooded footpath

Reported in the Parks/landscapes category anonymously at 10:14, Tue 15 December 2015

Sent to Hackney Council 1 minute later

The footpath becomes completely flooded as soon as it rains and is impassable. It has been like this for over two years at least, and the grass there has turned to mud. I've reported it numerous times before and they were supposed to fix it this year, but now they say next Spring so they don't seem to have any intention of fixing it.

  • I had a reply from Hackney Council that the flooded pathways would be dealt with when 'they had funding', even though I had reported this problem before and it was supposed to have been fixed Spring 2015!

  • This path in London Fields is still flooded. I was told by Council they would do it this Spring, and same thing last Spring, according to budget. The council have found the money for a new pathway from the toilets to the swings, new raised flower beds near Broadway market, resurfacing the bike lane, flower meadow which needs tens of thousands spent on it each year, and yet they can't fix a flooded pathway!

  • Not sure yet if it's fixed - after all these years of complaining they have finally put a drainage system down, but since we've had no rain to speak of recently can't tell if it'll work or not

  • After the recent downpours we've had the drainage has only partially helped. One part seems to be draining but the other part is still a big muddy puddle
