Big Up Take For Dudley Council Mobile App

People from across Dudley borough are finding it easier than ever to contact Dudley Council thanks to a special app for mobile devices.

The Dudley Council mobile app was launched last winter and has now been downloaded by more than 4,000 people.

Easy to use and quick to download, it enables people to use their phone to send in pictures of potholes, dumped rubbish, faulty street lights and graffiti as a way of reporting issues to the council.

The app allows council house tenants to send in pictures with requests for housing repairs, with over 2,000 requests being logged through the app since it was launched.

People can also use it to get up to speed with latest council news as well as finding out latest bus and train times and much more. Councillor Pete Lowe, leader of Dudley Council, said:

“Our app has seen a really big uptake and it is just one of the many ways in which our residents can contact us.

"We’re confident that the app’s popularity will continue to grow and I would encourage residents to download it and make the most of the functions it offers.”

People can send photographs with their reports of issues and the app pinpoints the exact location of the report and sends the information to the council to respond.

The app is available on the iphone and other smartphones and is free to download from Apple app store and from the Google Playstore on android phones. People should simply search for Dudley Council to get the app on their phone.

The app is part of the council’s LookingLocal service, which also allows residents to interact with council services via their television sets from the comfort of their living room. People with Virgin TV can use the LookingLocal service on their television to find out latest news and report issues to the council.
