Taking a break...

FixMyStreet is going offline shortly, probably permanently. The software is old and needs a complete rewrite, the site is being bombarded by spammers, and it is debatable whether councils are receiving and/or acting on FixMyStreet reports.

As of now, it is not possible to post new issues, or updates to published issues.

There are three issues on the Charteris Bay road in front of the golf and tennis clubs. One is a man hole that has been painted around to be fixed but never has been (approx 2 months) drivers have to navigate either side of the holes around this to avoid grounding there vehicle. Two other problems are similar, where the side of the road has broken away causing quite large holes deep enough for wheels to get caught in and causing the vehicle to change trajectory. Very dangerous. I watched a lady with 3 kids in her car hit the largest one which caused her to go onto the grass verge. luckily she was able to correct the vehicle. Both of these holes are deep enough to do damage to both cars and perhaps worse for cyclists and motorcyclists. This problem would be better fixed urgently before someone is hurt.
