Barnet Borough Council asks residents to report problems online
Barnet Borough Council is asking people to use a dedicated online tool to report problems caused by cold weather.
The council is using barnet.fixmystreet.com to allow residents to upload their details and images of issues they would like to see tackled.
This can be used to report problems such as potholes, damaged paving slabs and icy roads.
Use of the site is free and it can be accessed from the council’s website.
Councillor Dean Cohen, cabinet member for environment, said: “FixMyStreet is the quickest and easiest way for residents to report issues to us.
“Once a report has been submitted, it is then directed straight to the relevant council department to be dealt with.
“As the weather turns colder over the next few months, I am asking residents to help us fix problems as quickly as possible, whether this is potholes appearing on the road or in the event of snow, a particular icy public area that needs looking at again.
“I have also again tasked refuse crews with reporting potholes whilst carrying out their rounds which will mean every council maintained road in the borough will be monitored at least once a week.”
Residents are also able to log back into the site and leave a comment as to whether their problem has been appropriately resolved.
