The Council does not have any responsibility for drainage in Buntingford except for maintenance of the drainage in the public car park in Bowling Green Lane and for Layston Court Gardens (EHC property leased to Buntingford Town Council )

We do have an operational role for managing some aspects of surface water as part of our land drainage obligations. However this would only concern inspections and identification of land owners who are ultimately responsible for the maintenance of  drainage features on their land.
