Notice to Residents

Manningtree Town Council are aware of the sunken area in Manningtree High Street this has been reported to Essex County Council and has subsequently been investigated.

It has been confirmed by Anglian water that after carrying out some testing on their sewer and they believe they have a failure that will require excavation of the road to get down to the problem. In the meantime they have made safe the sunken area until such a time as they will then get there to undertake the further works required.

At this time we do not have a timescale for the works, when they do complete them it is possible the road may have to be closed to through traffic to enable safe working. This will be confirmed and Manningtree Town Council will endeavor to put out a public message to residents via our website and social media page.
