Gosport Road near Marelands: We have reported the noisy manhole cover to HCC.

Brightstone Lane - We are aware of the issues with blocked drains here and have written numerous times to HCC.  There are 22 drains here.

Crows Lane -  2 blocked drains and a section of damaged pipework (barrier) - reported March 2024 - awaiting response 8/4/24

Hall Lane (near Upper Farringdon House/corner sign) - deemed not requiring action

Shirnall Meadows / Chase View Entrance - this problem with the blocked has been sorted by HCC. We are hoping that they are now part of the maintenance schedule to avoid future flooding here.

We are creating a Drain Location Book, taking pictures of where the drains are in Farringdon, this is then put on a Farringdon map (numbering the drains). This will be put on this website when finished (bit of a slog as there are a lot of drains to photograph and map), so if you feel there is an issue with drains you can look at the book and tell us the number.

Barleywood Farm Lane (Gaston Lane):  I have written to HCC again (8/4/24)  asking if they have a time frame yet for these works. This is the reply: The works to repair the culvert are currently at the design stage, the site has been measured and drawings are being compiled. These all need to be checked and approved before works can commence. Currently there is no programmed date for the works, but it is in hand and notification will be given once a date is obtained.

It is unfortunate people ignore signage especially when it is put out for safety reasons. We are checking the Traffic Management on site daily and will rectify any issues that are noted.


Earlier we made an official complaint to HCC about closing the road until July 2025. Response from HCC - 

Thank you for your recent communication regarding the closure of Barleywood Farm Lane at the culvert. Hampshire County Council have taken the decision to close this section of road for safety reasons after a site inspection and on the advice of a structural engineer. It was brought to our attention that the spandrels and wingwalls of the culvert are failing.

The road closure notice that we have obtained spans 18 months. This does not mean the road will stay closed for 18 months but allows us to periodically close the road within that time without the need to apply for another road closure.

We are currently liaising with our Structures department on securing a team who can carry out the repairs. Works will be programmed as soon as resource allows but until that time the road will remain closed for safety.
