Worcestershire Hub Online Services – Frequently Asked Questions

How do I raise a service request?

You can raise a service request in three different ways:

  • Anonymously – for anyone who does not wish us to contact them in relation to their request*
  • *Please note that we may not be able to fulfil anonymous requests entirely if we have any outstanding questions following investigation
  • By providing contact details – for anyone who is prepared to provide contact details but does not wish to register at this stage
  • By registering – for anyone who expects to use the service regularly and/or would like to track the progress of their requests online

How do I use the interactive map?

1.   From the 'Find It' Tab, press the Show button to view the interactive map

2.   Pinpoint the exact location of the defect, either by using your mouse or keyboard to zoom in or zoom out of the map. Alternatively, you can use the drop-down menus or postcode search boxes below the map, or enter the location co-ordinates if known.

3.   To mark the defect location, click in the centre of the road where the defect exists. You will then be presented with a pop-up box. To confirm the location of the defect, click on the magnifying glass.

4.   To save and continue, go to the 'Report It' tab. Ensure all of the required fields in the reporting form are completed before pressing Submit.

TIP: If you get a message 'Please report the fault in the centre of the road ' try zooming out on the map before clicking on the road again.

 

How do I track my service request?

When completing a service request, you will be given a unique reference number that can be used to check the progress of your request at anytime by contacting the Worcestershire Hub. Registered users can track progress themselves online without having to contact the Worcestershire Hub.

 

What happens once I submit my request?

Your request is sent directly to the relevant service area on pressing submit, so please provide as much information as possible to enable us to deal with your request quickly and effectively
