Croydon Council has developed a mobile phone application so residents can easily report environmental problems via their smart phones.
The free app, called My Croydon, is available for both Apple and Android devices and supports the Council’s ongoing ‘Keep it Clean’ campaign. It can be used to tell the Council about many of the most commonly reported issues from fly-tipping and pot holes to graffiti, blocked drains and abandoned vehicles.
It can be downloaded from the Apple and Android stores or via links on the Council’s website at www.croydon.gov.uk/app.
You can easily select the problem you’d like to report, take a photo of it and confirm its location. The Council does the rest. The issue is sent to them, logged and passed onto the relevant department to be taken care of.
The new app is an easy-to-use service which will make it even simpler for people to report problems so that the Council can put them right. I’d encourage as many constituents as possible to use it – the more people report problems to the Council, the quicker they will get sorted out.
