Make it easier for you to report issues to your council


Following on from my post about the first theme of the Kent Connects Developing Solutions challenge, I thought I would have a look at the second theme – make it easier for you to report issues to your council.

There are many ways that technology is being used for people to report issues, whether it’s reporting a pothole that needs fixing, texting in a photo of waste on the street or sharing your experience with frontline staff. And that information can be used in really creative ways. But there are issues which you can’t report easily.

Along with the ideas above, here are a few OS OpenSpace applications that are making the most of online mapping to make it easier to report issues.

Bournemouth council online reporting

Kirklees online reporting

Good luck to all of you who enter the challenge, I am looking forward to seeing more good uses of OS OpenSpace to help people help each other.
