How to report a problem

1. Enter a nearby UK postcode, or street name and area

2. Locate the problem on a map of the area

3. Enter details of the problem (attaching a photo can provide information and save you time)

4. FixMyStreet sends a report to the council, or appropriate body on your behalf.

FixMyStreet is a website designed to make it easy for you to report a problem anywhere, anytime – even if you don't know which organisation is responsible for fixing the problem, and you don't have time to find out.

If you prefer, you can send your report anonymously.

FixMyStreet will acknowledge your report immediately, and the system enables you to monitor progress.

Just report the problem to FixMyStreet and let the system do the rest for you.

FixMyStreet maps the location of faults with a date and detailed description.

Getting problems fixed is simple

Drop a pin on the map, add any important details about your pothole, or other fault, attach a photo if it helps and press send. This should only take you a couple of minutes. As well as directing your report to the relevant council or utility provider, FixMyStreet will publish your report and any photos online, so everyone can identify whether a fault has been reported already, and follow progress.
