GREEN STREET FLOODING –
Call for Action
The dip on Green Street closest to the junction of Orchard Drive is flooding so badly now that the road (the widest access to Chorleywood village centre) is impassable to both vehicles and pedestrians on a regular basis and the 336 bus from High Wycombe to Watford is frequently re-routed. The flooding is not only inconvenient but is also a potential safety hazard.
CALL FOR ACTION
A core of local residents have been lobbying MP David Gauke and communicating with Herts County Council about the situation and pleading for a solution to no avail.
The group need help in raising the profile of the issue.
Chorleywood Magazine along with community partners Chorleywood Residents’ Association and Chorleywood Mums are encouraging readers and members to take one (or more) of the following actions.
1. Register a complaint with Herts County Council about the inaction of Herts Highways to restore access and clear the highway
