Fix Digbeth Before the Freeze
Can you help to fix Digbeth before the freeze? Fixmystreet.com, where you can report, view, or discuss local problems (such as fly tipping, broken paving slabs, street lighting, etc.) is urging people to take action and get their neighbourhood street problems fixed before the winter freeze.
The ‘Fix Before the Freeze’ campaign hopes to see to the little issues that could become big headaches before winter:
- Unfixed potholes will become larger as the frost takes grip. Report them now and ensure safer roads in the forthcoming icy conditions.
- Broken lampposts don’t matter on long summer days, but on dark evenings they can be a real danger.
- Cracked or broken paving slabs are a hazard for the elderly and infirm, and doubly so when the frost strikes.
FixMyStreet.com makes it very simple to report problems to the council – just type in the postcode or street name where you have identified a problem, add a quick description, and it’s automatically sent to the right department in the relevant council.
They have also provided poster and flier downloads to print out, so that you can spread the word locally. Those of you with smartphones might also be interested to know there is a Fix My Street app, so you can report problems as you spot them whilst out and about!
