History and background

FixMyStreet Pro is a service for councils, public bodies and highways agencies run by SocietyWorks. The service grew out of the website FixMyStreet, which was set up in 2007 by civic technology charity mySociety, to which SocietyWorks belongs. Still running today, FixMyStreet ​makes it simple for any citizen to report a public street issue, such as graffiti, broken streetlights, unsafe paving, highways maintenance or potholes. It covers the whole of the UK.

Reports made through FixMyStreet are published on the website and sent — primarily by email — to the correct UK council for resolution. Councils do not need to have purchased FixMyStreet Pro in order to receive these reports, but FixMyStreet Pro adds enhanced functionality for staff users, as well as the ability to integrate a tailored version of FixMyStreet on the council website as their fault reporting interface.
