FixMyStreet is a project to help communities report, view, or discuss local problems they’ve found to their local council by simply locating them on a map.
It launched in early February 2007 but I discovered it right now.
FixMyStreet is primarily for reporting things which are broken or dirty or damaged or dumped, and need fixing, cleaning or clearing, such as:
- Abandoned vehicles
- Dog Fouling
- Flyposting or graffiti
- Flytipping or litter
- Streetcleaning, such as broken glass in a cycle lane
- Unlit lamposts
I hope that this techno activism (techtivism) will grow to a wider audience, simply because we need it!
