Central Bedfordshire - Mobile App

Central Beds Council Mobile App 

What can you do on the Central Beds Council App?

Central Beds Council have launched a mobile app - Central Bedfordshire - to give Central Bedfordshire residents a fast and effective way to report highways issues to them whilst on the move.

  • surface defects in pavements
  • surface defects on the road
  • potholes
  • street light faults
  • overgrown trees

Using mobile technology, maps, photographs and GPS, you can report issues anytime, anywhere.

The mobile app responds to the growing number of residents that use mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets to report issues to them.

Going forward the Council will continue to develop the app to include reporting other issues such as missed bins.

How can you download the mobile app?

You can download the mobile app for free for IOS or Android mobile phones and the iPad.
