Tom Watson reports via Twitter that MySociety’s FixMyStreet is now embedded in DirectGov. On the page in question, a boxout gives you the option of reporting a problem via FixMyStreet rather than through the usual route of DirectGov linking you through to your local authority.
An interesting example of making volunteer effort a part of the ‘official’ government offering. I have had some interesting discussions with some local gov folk about how useful FixMyStreet actually is, so it will be fascinating to see how this is received.
One thought on “FixMyStreet on DirectGov!”
It would be fascinating to hear what local gov people feel about the usefulness of fixmystreet. Can you share (either in the comments, or via email)?
