I first came across fixmystreet.com about 18 months ago.
It's a simple idea. You report (and publish) issues with your local area on the internet, and FixMyStreet.com reports the problems to the council. The council then are both:
- Notified of the Problem
- Embarrassed by the publication on the internet
- Under pressure to get the problem solved.
In my opinion this is a win-win situation for residents. I have so far made one report, and am seeing progress on getting it fixed. See my report here.
Especially for those of you in the Brummie area - let's sign up and Fix Our Streets!
