From December 1, complaints will have to be made online

Residents will have to go online to make reports about broken street lights from next month.

From December 1, all faulty street light reports will have to be made through a form on the council’s website.

The move is expected to cut administrative costs, with all reports being automatically sent to the council’s maintenance contractor.

Bexley cabinet member for traffic and transport, Alex Sawyer said: “If you do not have access to the web, just ask a family member or friend to make the report for you, or visit your local library where internet access is available free of charge.”
