Adopt a road / adopt a drain

This will get off the ground soon. We are just in the process of obtaining a printed map of the gullies in the parish. This is meticulously documented at – and I am told that every single road gully is listed and individually recorded on ESCC’s asset register.

On that web site you can see when every single road is due for gully cleaning. On the home page, check “Gully cleaning” and then zoom in the map until you can see the road you are interested in. Hover the mouse pointer over said road until the pointer changes to a single finger (you have to be fairly precise, or zoom in a lot), then click on it. You should see a pop-up that tells you when the gully is due to be cleaned. We could use this information to hold ESCC to account if the gully cleaning does not take place. I have checked several round Brightling and all the ones that I looked at said “Mar-17”
