Kensington and Chelsea create app to solve problems

A central London council has created an app to help residents report problems they come across in the borough.

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea has created the RBKC Local Services app for Android, Blackberry and Apple systems.

People using the app will be able to report issues including broken pavements, graffiti and broken parking meters.

Residents who use the app can register their name or remain anonymous.

Councillor Joanna Gardner said: "As the app is in real time it also means that our officers will be able to deal with problems far quicker than was the case previously."

The app can also be used to check progress on issues and look up information on the move.
