Sometimes, things are just not quite as good as they could be. Someone may have fly tipped some rubbish in a layby, or you hear of a theft. Maybe a street lamp has broken or you have witnessed some vandalising. Either way, we want you to report it. Some things can be reported directly to the agencies that work to resolve issues, such as highways, missed refuse collections.
Below you will find links to the appropriate on-line reporting tools together with an indication of what can be reported to them. If you’re not sure where something should be reported, let us know using the Stisted on-line form.
This section is for just that. Report the issue and we will try and deal with it as quickly as possible. We will acknowledge receipt of your message and also let you know the outcome.
Where to report (and what):
HIGHWAYS: damage to bridges, structures, culverts or subways; overgrown vegetation; damaged bus stops, bins, benches,fences, barriers or bollards; damaged or missing manhole covers; flooding and blocked drains, traffic lights; fly-tipping, abandoned vehicles; potholes, damaged footpaths and kerbs; obstructions.
