Road and Street Scene Defects
Some, all or none of you may be aware that Wiltshire Council now has a new app in which you can
raise defects within your Parish or within the County if you are on your travels. This new system is not only web based but is also available for smart phones.
This is a great way for the Parish and its residents to report problems to them. Obviously
they still want to be in regular contact with the parishes. But anyone who feels a defect in their area needs urgent attention can do so via the app.
