How to report issues to the Council

If you noticed ways in which your local area isn't quite as clean, orderly or beautiful as you'd expected, would you know where to go?

If you noticed ways in which your local area isn't quite as clean, orderly or beautiful as you'd expected, would you know where to go?

Things break all the time and if it’s the Council’s responsibility to fix it, then the council needs to know. It could be reporting a fly-tipping incident, overgrown hedging or a series of new potholes.

Whatever you spot, just let the council know to make sure it’s on our radar. The homepage of the Southampton City Council is a great place to start if you need to report a problem from missed litter bins to road issues.

Here are a few common pages which you may find useful when reporting issues:

By getting in touch with the Council they can be made aware of the issues you report and can send the right person to assess it and make sure the necessary steps are taken to fix the problem.

Sometimes, problems which are raised simply cannot be fixed in the way we may like. But reporting what you see really helps to improve awareness of issues in the local area.

If you believe that you have tried all of the available routes of enquiry through the Council’s website, that’s where you get in touch with myself or one of your other Councillors.

We’ll be able to find out what is happening and see if we can help to assist you in resolving the situation.

Even as your Councillor, I don’t always have the ability to resolve situations as you might expect, but we will represent you and the things you care about based on the resources available to me.

I am privileged to be one of your Councillors in Peartree and am therefore really keen to make sure I meet my responsibilities to you. So if you have anything you would like me to help with, please do get in touch with me.
