We Want To Show You How We Can Help Your Community
Our company is passionate about keeping local environments attractive and safe. Local authorities and government said it couldn’t be done and that it was to expensive to build such a national fault reporting system. Thus, Street Repairs was born. Built with donations, tech advice and manpower generously provided from a small software company in Leyland Lancashire Street Repairs has now become the fastest growing fault reporting system in the UK. Street Repairs was developed out of the need for a public friendly system to communicate between residents and their local authorities, so that’s what we’ve built.
We come across street defects in everyday life and many of them go unreported. In the past making a report was difficult and time consuming, tracking down the correct department, and following the right procedures can leave us all discouraged. It’s solely reliant on donations to keep it running but has proven to be very effective in getting the job done
All too often low level problems such as a flickering street light, minor pothole, or broken Zebra crossing light will go ignored by local residents and the local authority.
Overtime these problems worsen, until an area looks rundown and can even become dangerous. For example, a small pothole can be quickly and inexpensively repaired. The same pothole, if left over the winter, will grow in size through repeated freezing and thawing of the water accumulating in it. After just a few months, the pothole will become a dangerous hazard for motorists, cyclists, motorcyclists and other road users risking damage to both property and residents
Neighbourhoods that feel neglected can often attract anti-social behaviour. One malfunctioning street light, may attract graffiti vandals, which in turn may attract fly-tipping, and could encourage antisocial behaviour.
