road drainage damaging wall

Postby amboringbutcultural » Wed Mar 27, 2013 5:46 pm

We have a one brick thick front boundary wall which is overturning,adjacent to a camber on the road sloping down towards the wall as there is no pavement our side.
We have noticed that the drainage of the road is such that there is only one drain before a terrace of 6 houses with gutters all draining into a gully from downpipes until just past our wall where there is another drain.
When it rains the water come into our property before it reaches the drain and has in our view contributed to the overturning of the wall.

The wall is 3 foot with half moon coping and looks like replacement as the wall the other side of our access is the same design but the original Victorian wall.

We have dug down and found that the foundations are only two bricks below road level but that is probably the situation with the other wall which is not overturning.

Where do you think we stand with the council with this?
Can't see the wood for the trees.
