Walking past the smashed bus stop outside Energie gym I thought to use the Fix My Street app to alert the council to the glass scattered everywhere. As my past experience with this and similiar apps has been spotty I thought we could have a thread where you can say what you have reported and has it been actioned.

I also wondered how anyone could crash into the bus stop there but given the current accident rate in FH maybe I shouldn't. Blink

It does seem hit and miss depending on who attends. Bus stop glass was sorted in an hour. Blocked gulley still blocked 2 years later.

I always follow up on Twitter with @LewishamCouncil
Feels like a more solid form of progress. Fix My Street is after all only an unofficial middle man so to speak.

Most things have been dealt with pretty well I have to say, although a couple of things took a few cheeky sarcastic tweets to get moving.

Pavement blocked by overgrown hedge reported a few weeks ago. No action to date but it is on the website.

This problem really annoys me. Can the Council trim hedges and invoice the occupier?

I wish I knew. The one in question forces anyone using a pushchair / wheelchair into the cycle lane (and when it is wet, and the foliage heavy, just about all pedestrians) and is not only a completely overgrown hedge but also a tree which leans over the pavement and looks suspiciously like it is dead - you would have thought they would at least take the latter seriously.

I am about to contact L&Q about a local house with stupidly overgrown hedges, which forces a pinch on the pavement, and people into the road. Fingers crossed that's one less to contend with.

Where is the one you have reported Erekose? I will join the bandwagon and apply a little more pressure. See if it helps.

Aaaah strangely enough I ended up in the cycle path there the other evening on a random walk. Certainly needs attention. Thumbup

I had a reply from highways today advising they would send a stiff letter to the residents of the offending house. Who knows it may work.

I notice that the offending tree has now gone. The sawdust seems to be in the road so was it blown down by Katie?
Now if only the hedge could be fixed as well.

The leak I reported on Manor Mount is still there but at least I get a monthly update Laugh

Reported a bollard knocked over in Kirkdale and that was repaired in 24 hours.

As Snazy mentioned before I also find Twitter more effective.

I tweeted this today to Lewisham Council

https://mobile.twitter.com/paulinewright...3534517248

And they replied within the hour to say it had been logged along with a reference number.

I reported a fridge that has been dumped on Westwood Park on the road. I reported it at 8:50 am. As it is actually in the road I hope they remove it.

Sadly the leak on the Dartmouth Arms side of Dartmouth Road seems to be prevailing (still!).

HW, that is no leak. That is a water feature.
