Kidsgrove residents could soon see the benefits from a £300,000 investment in drain cleaning by Staffordshire County Council. This will be welcome news to Kidsgrove residents who have been asking for their drains to be cleaned and reporting issues with flooding in the Kidsgrove area. Kidsgrove Councillor Mary Maxfield has commented in the past how the area only has one drainage cleaning vehicle available, which really hinders the cleaning process in Kidsgrove.
Kidsgrove and Staffordshire has seen one of the wettest summers on record, so this move will help unblock and survey gullies to make sure they are adequately prepared for the winter. The focus will initally be on the main known issues, which will hopefully see some areas of Kidsgrove addressed as soon as possible.
