Report It
If you have spotted a problem in your area, please report it by using the following link to an online reporting form. The 'Report It' facility is an Oxfordshire initiative which makes it easier for people to report a range of problems from abandoned vehicles, ant-social behaviour to traffic light problems. You don't have to know which authority is responsible for dealing with the problem - all you need to do is report the problem and the details are then sent to the relevant authority to deal with. Click here to find out how to report it.
