FixMyStreet is a site to help people 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. 


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

* Potholes



FixMyStreet is not a way of getting in touch with your council for all issues – please use FixMyStreet only for problems such as the above. We often route problem reports via cleansing services or highways and so using FixMyStreet for other matters may result in a delay in your report getting to the right department. You will need to contact your council directly for problems such as:


* Anti-social behaviour

* Any urgent or emergency problems

* Noise pollution or barking dogs

* Fires and smoke/smell pollution

* Missing wheelie bins or recycling boxes or missed rubbish collections

* Proposals for speed bumps/ CCTV/ pedestrian crossings/ new road layouts/ etc.

* Complaining about your neighbours

* Complaining about the council

* Joy riding, drug taking, animal cruelty, or other criminal activity


Councils often have direct hotlines for these sorts of issues.
