Fix my street

FixMyStreet is a mySociety website through which users can report potholes, broken street lights and similar problems with streets and roads in England, Scotland, and Wales to their local council or related organisation, and see what reports have already been made. The site was initially funded by the Department for Constitutional Affairs Innovations Fund and built by mySociety , in conjunction with the Young Foundation. The site was originally launched as Neighbourhood Fix-It, but it was decided to change to a shorter and easier name in June 2007 when one became available.
