Street Services - fault reporting

Birmingham City Council encourages members of the public to report faults with any of the street services under its control, so we can repair problems as soon as possible.

Please use the links below to the individual forms in order to report street faults you might have come across.

Please try to give as much detail as possible, and although it is not mandatory please also leave us your own contact details so we can get back to you if we have any queries, and also to keep you updated on the progress of the report.


Report Street faults on your mobile


Anyone who has a mobile phone can also report street faults by text.

The message will be registered on our customer contact system and the sender will then get a response confirming that their report has been logged and will be dealt with. To use this service text HIGHWAYS + Space + message to 07786 200 403. Accurate details of the location and nature of the fault should be included in the text to speed up our response
