Fix my street, London, UK
Launched in February 2007, FixMyStreet is a web service to help people report, view, or discuss local problems with their local council by simply locating them on a map. Built by MySociety, a not-for-pro t company, in conjunction with The Young Foundation, FixMyStreet smartly routes reports of things that are broken or dumped, or need fixing, cleaning or clearing, direct to the relevant council in the UK. Similar systems include CitySourced in the USA, which uses an iPhone ‘app’ as the primary interface.
