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.

If you have submitted on FixMyStreet, thank you for playing a part in one of Aotearoa/New Zealand's early civic tech projects.

Graffiti on north facing wall of Victoria Street car park

Taggers are getting onto the roof of ViVace restaurant and tagging the north-facing wall of the Victoria street car park. There are two possible ways for them to gain access to this area. The first (by leaning around the ledge of the 3rd floor of the Victoria street car park) has been blocked off by the addition of a mesh fence. The other means of egress is via a driveway between the building at 36-38 Kitchener street and the Victoria Street car park. There is some barbed wire on the wall at the back of this driveway that is obviously intended to stop people from climbing the wall onto the roof of ViVace, but it has been squashed down and is obviously ineffective. See attached photo. I think that, before covering the graffiti on the wall of the car park building, the council will need to co-operate with whichever building owner is responsible for the wall to ensure the barbed wire is strengthened - otherwise, painting over the graffiti will be in vain.

The graffiti was removed, but within 24 hours new graffiti was put up in its place. I have reminded the council that, unless they also fix the barbed wire, the graffiti will just keep coming back...
