Reporting Potholes

UPDATE ON HOW TO REPORT POTHOLES – JUNE 2021

The Fix My Street App is now the preferred option for reporting highways issues. Everyone is encouraged to download the App. It is very easy to take a photo of the pothole and report it on the App.

Any enquiries regarding Highways issues, including pot holes, etc should be sent to Nuria.Smith@Shropshire.gov.uk who is now a dedicated officer for Town and Parish council highway issues.

It is very important to report potholes to Shropshire Council so that they are logged and prioritised. The more people who report a pothole, the more likely it will get actioned.

You could also send an email to the Clerk of Neen Savage Parish Council – Mrs McBride at Clerk@neensavageparishcouncil.org.uk

Autumn Litter Pick

Please meet at the Parish Hall at 10am to collect your litter picking equipment and instructions.

Many hands will make light work – in just 2 hours together we can collect a lot of rubbish and clean our roadsides.
