Fix my Street!

Shropshire Council is encouraging residents to report issues of concern via the website www.fixmystreet.com

Reporting anything is a very straightforward process. Typing in a postcode brings up a good map of the area so that the issue of concern can be marked. There is a comprehensive ‘tick box’ list of categories – Abandoned vehicles, Bus stops, Car parking, Dog fouling, … Pavements/footpaths, Potholes, …Other. Users are encouraged to add a photo of the problem – issues with photos are apparently likely to be resolved more quickly. Users are required to put in some personal information but, from my own experience, this doesn’t generate a mass of ‘rubbish’ correspondence, just allows confirmation that the issue has been logged.

The process is simple and quick to do. We all have things we like to grumble about so let’s actually report them! A flood of reports about and photos of the same potholes might get them fixed sooner.

Hodnet Parish News

The October edition of the parish magazine is currently being delivered to all households in the Parish. Accompanying it this month is an envelope marked ‘Parish Survey’. Every five years the Parish Council must review and renew its Parish Plan, which helps to shape the decisions taken within the community. That time has come again and, in order that the Parish Council remains informed about what the priorities are for the community, you are strongly encouraged to have your say by completing as much as possible of the survey to enable your opinions to be taken into account.

There is more information about the survey in the Hodnet Parish News.

A web-based version of this survey may be completed and submitted online, via this link.

Alternatively, you can download and print a copy of the survey here:
