Portsmouth City Council launches new app to report problems
CITY residents are being encouraged to use a new app to keep the streets safer and tidier.
Portsmouth City Council has launched a new version of the My Portsmouth app, which allows people to anonymously report issues such as fly tipping, abandoned vehicles and problems with drains. It also allows users to enquire about bulky waste collections, check their bin collection day and find out more about their local councillor.
Councillor Dave Ashmore, the council’s environment boss, said: ‘We are committed to keeping the city's streets clean, safe and tidy. We have dedicated teams to respond to report to littering, broken streetlights and parking issues, but we can't be everywhere at once. By using the app, people can be our eyes and ears across the city, telling us about problems so we can put them right as soon as possible.’
It can be downloaded free from the Apple app store and the Google Play store for Android phones.
