People in Calderdale can now report a highways issue or problem on their smart phone or tablet in less time than it takes to make a cup of tea!
In response to customer feedback, we’ve made it easier for people to let us know about issues in their local area. The new form is quick and easy to use and ideal if you notice a pot hole or other highways issue that you want to report straight away. Not only can you pin point exactly where the problem is, you can upload a photo that will be sent straight to the Council’s highways team. By doing this, we’ll have all the information we need to enable us to sort the issue as quickly as possible.
Reporting couldn’t be easier, simply:
- · Visit our highways reporting web page
- · If you want to use a map, simply click on the ‘Use a map’ option
- · Enter the postcode or click ‘search current location’
- · Touch the map where the defect is that you’re reporting
- · Click next and then select the type of fault you’re reporting
- · You can then give more details, such as lamppost number. You can upload a photo at this point
- · Review what you’ve added to the request and receive an automatic acknowledgment and reference number
