MySociety Do It Again

I’ve been using yet another fantastic site from MySociety, Neighbourhood Fix-It. As always, the idea is fantastically simple, but the execution so perfect. You put in a postcode. You see a map with pointers to problems the local council should fix. You can add your own problems, in which case the council is notified on your behalf, or update existing ones. Beautiful.

What’s even more fantastic is the scrollable, clickable map is done entirely without Javascript. How cool is that?

  1. It does use javascript, it just works without.

    It’s done with JavaScript. It’s functional with JavaScript off, but the drag and drop etc doesn’t work, you have to scroll manually with the arrows.
