Highways

Residents can now report highways issues quickly and easily, and track their progress, through a new online system  and the FixMyStreet app. The user-friendly reporting system allows reports to be pinpointed on a map, photos to be added and shows residents’ reports that have already been created, plus any planned roadworks, which saves time and avoids multiple reporting.

The new system allows residents to report highways concerns such as potholesfaulty streetlightsblocked drains and roadside ditches, overgrown roadside hedges and trees and more.

It’s not just highways issues that can be reported, the new system allows reports on fly-tippingweeds, litter and dog waste bins and graffiti.

The new FixMyStreet app can be downloaed onto both Android and IOS devices.
