Heatmaps and video stars

The latest Community & Councils news from mySociety

Heatmaps are cool

This is a view you'll only see on FixMyStreet if you're a member of Bromley Borough Council staff — well, at the moment, anyway.

Heatmaps are making it easier for Bromley to understand where reports of each type, from potholes to blocked drains, are most concentrated. Find out more in our latest blog post.

Buckinghamshire County Council are video stars

We were chuffed to see that Bucks council had put together a short video pointing out the benefits of their FixMyStreet integration...not least the incredible savings they reckon it brings with every report.

Read more about their foray into film here.

Buckinghamshire Council talk through recent improvements to their FixMyStreet implementation.

Planning register update


Last time we told you all about our current project exploring how to make trustworthy, up-to-date planning application data easier to find, use, and build into services.

If that's something that interests you, you'll want to read Mike's latest update, which goes over what we've discovered so far.

Bromley and FixMyStreet at the LGC Awards

Earlier this month, we saw the FixMyStreet team looking uncharacteristically spiffy as they attended the 2019 LGC Awards with our partners at Bromley council.

The authority's implementation of FixMyStreet Pro had been shortlisted in the category “Driving efficiency through technology”.

Sadly we were pipped to the post by another worthy winner, but you can see more about the awards in our blog post, or read our new Bromley case study to get the full story on just how we've worked with the borough council to deliver better services for their residents.

And finally...

Much more about this later, but save the date for the next TICTeC Local, the one-day conference where Civic Tech meets Local Government.

This year we'll be in London on Friday November 1. Sign up for our mailing list to hear when more details are finalised.
