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.

Trees lifting the footpath (from the roots) and growing under ground into my property and becoming a hazard (and an eyesore) to my lawn. It's also slowing creeping toward my house. We're not allowed to cut them down otherwise we will be fined by Council, yet Council do not mow around them, we have to pay rates for these trees being on our property/boundary, yet Council have the last say about their life. So not fair!
