Here’s an interesting and useful new service from the civic-minded folk at mySociety: Neighbourhood Fix-It. I don’t know what the mechanics are, e.g., how the Council is notified, but this will become apparent over time. I did sign up and provided an example of something that needs attention: this street sign at the corner of Greenhill Road and Billesley Lane.
The reporting process requires location information like a postcode, so I supplied some info and was shown this nice Ordnance Survey map in return:
There’s also a listing of other locally-reported problems, and an RSS feed to alert users of updates.
So now it’s a matter of wait and see...
