There is a vacancy for a village FixMyStreet Super User to enable faster fixing of potholes, damaged kerbing and drains.
Fix My Street allows residents to report problems on the roads. Anything added to Fix My Street results in a council highways inspector visiting the site and assessing each problem to see if a repair is needed according to set criteria. If it is, they then place an order for the work to be done.
Super Users help to speed up the process. Under the scheme, people are given training in identifying and assessing things like potholes, blocked drains and damaged signs along with guidance on working safely on the roads. They are authorised not only to make reports but also to order repairs to be carried out. Volunteers are only expected to cover their local area and will be assessed to ensure they can use the systems and carry out “Super User” requirements safely.
If you would like to volunteer to be Long Wittenham’s FixMyStreet Super User, please contact the parish clerk at email@example.com.
