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.

I have worked hard to try to maintain the area in the attached photo but find it impossible due to poor road drainage flooding the area. This is next to an area that is used as the local school bus stop. Who drives through here?: 1. The rural delivery contractor (daily). 2. Parents parking up to pick-up/drop-off children on the school buses. 3. Anyone who wants to turn around (including trucks) - there are not many places wide enough to u-turn on this road. 4. Supporters parking up for the many events that run through here. 5. NOT ME. This is public land and is a public amenity (road and bus stop), it just happens to be outside my property. I do my best as a good citizen to maintain this (mow grass, clear rubbish etc.) I do not have the mandate or the resources to deal with this problem properly. I have spoken to TDC previously about this problem but the response has been unsatisfactory (flippant response/not treated seriously). I am now under threat of mail delivery suspension. Could TDC please address this problem.
