More details
Neighbourhood Fix-It is mySociety's next site. It is a simple service which allows people across the UK to report common local problems like graffiti, broken street lights, leaking pipes etc by sticking a pin in the map. What makes it different is that it will provide a public place where users can see what has been reported by other users, make comments on what's going on, and subscribe to alerts when new development occur.

Before making it live, we need some initial testers who can submit real problems so we can see how it all works. We won't launch the site until we get 25!

Neighbourhood Fix-It was funded by the Department for Constitutional Affairs, built by Matthew Somerville and cost £10,000
