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 manage commercial property within Chch and have been having major problems with the huge numbers of pigeons that have taken over the inner city. They present a significant HSE problem and Council needs to take urgent action to address the issue. Buildings are being damaged and tenants are being affected by lice. Section 53 of The Wildlife Act, 1953, lists feral pigeons as a pest species, and entitles local councils to remove them from public places. See http://www.hamilton.govt.nz/our-city/parks/pigeonmanagement/Pages/default.aspx which provides details of how the problem is being dealt with in Hamilton. Urgent action is required.
