Land drainage

We are a land drainage authority and we work with our partners including Staffordshire County Council and the Environment Agency to provide advice and guidance on matters relating to the Land Drainage Act.

We are directly responsible for some water courses and have a programme of maintenance to ensure these remain free-flowing and do not cause problems to nearby residents, businesses, roads and public spaces.

We can also take action where appropriate to ensure land drainage is undertaken appropriately in the district.

If you have any questions about land drainage, call us on 01543 687546.
