Newtownabbey Borough Council has subscribed to a new mobile application enabling the public to report faults they see anywhere in Northern Ireland through the use of their smartphone.

The app automatically forwards the incident to the relevant local council.

‘Reportall’ allows residents to do their bit for the community by letting the council know about problems they encounter in their daily lives such as litter, graffiti, dog fouling and fly-tipping as well as anti-social behaviour.

If the incident reported is outside the remit of the council, the fault or problem will be re-assigned to the public body responsible.

Caroline Douglas, Business Support Manager for Environment and Leisure Services commented: “The app provides a great way for the public to report any incidents they see while out and about in Northern Ireland.

“A user can sign up anonymously but if they register then feedback will be provided for each incident reported.

“Geo-tagging enables accurate location of the incident so no one needs to remember exactly where the fault is.”

‘Reportall’ can be downloaded for free from Google Play or the Apple App Store.
