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.

We live at 112 McCormacks Bay Rd.opposite what used to be quiet parkland. For the last year or two it has been used as a gravel loading yard previously to build a slip prevention structure just along the road. Since then it continues to be used for transshipping gravel for other firms often 6 days a week. How long do we who live opposite have to put up with the noise of large articulated trucks unloading and small trucks loaded with a noisy loader. There is also the dust as part of this operation and the many vehicle movemnets in and out of the yard. It has at times been from 6:30am until the evening

Since I lodged this complaint my wife and I have had several phone calls from a council person called Paul, He informed us there had been other complaints too. Good news is that this last week, 20-24 March 2017, the site has been ripped up and made ready for planting to return it to reserve land. Can't come soon enough. Was probably just a coincidence as Paul said Central Government had approved the use of these temporary construction assist sites until 2018.
