New ‘Love Leicester’ app allows users to report ‘grot spots’ in city
A new smartphone app called Love Leicester has been released by Leicester City Council, which allows users to take photo’s of ‘grot spots’ in and around the city and send them directly to the council.
The photo’s will automatically be tagged with the location, so the council can go and assess the area and arrange a clean-up.
The app replaces the now defunct One Clean Leicester app that was launched back in 2011, and is designed to let people in Leicester report problems in their area quickly and easily.
As well as reporting problems, the Love Leicester app also provides quick links to local council service information so users can always stay connected with what is going on in their area.
The app is available to download now on iPhone, Android and Windows Phone.
Announcing the new improved app, Coun Sarah Russell said:
“The number of people who use smartphones is growing every day and apps such as Love Leicester make it really easy for them to take an active pride in their city and neighbourhoods.
“The heart of the app is still the ability for people to quickly tell the council about any grot spots or other problems they come across, so we can put it right.”
What is Love Leicester?
The app is part of a wider campaign run by the council called ‘Love Leicester’, which aims to “encourage everyone living and working here to show some real pride in the city. To be proud of Leicester’s many communities, rich history, big ambitions, places and spaces, and much more besides.”
