All Other Local Issues – Wiltshire Council

It is easier than ever to report things like potholes, dog mess, graffiti, litter and street lighting in our Parish using Wiltshire Council’s My Wiltshire online form.  Reports can be made anonymously, but it only takes a few minutes to register.  Registration is free and once you have joined you can track the reports you have made, even receiving a notification once the work has been completed.

It is even better if you download the app onto your Smart phone as it’ll upload the location and you can also easily add photos.
