Report a Hazard

You can help us make this website as useful as possible by marking hazards on our map.  Click your mouse and drag a pin to mark the spot where you have seen a hazard.

Our interactive map uses a method called ‘crowdsourcing’ to gather accurate information – and even photographs – from members of the public just like you.  Anybody with access to the internet can report on a hazard they see by marking it themself on our map, even adding photos or comments if they want to.  This helps us provide the most detailed and up-to-date information possible, as well as helping us to quickly alert the most appropriate authorities.  

The pins, comments and attached photos will remain visible for 24 hours, however you should also use our reporting feature to notify Calderdale Council of the problem so action can be taken.

You can report a hazard to the Council by clicking NEXT and then completing the form.  

If your property is flooding and you need assistance, please DO NOT USE this form, phone the emergency services on 999 (or 101 if not an emergency) and/or contact the Council on 01422 288001 (or 01422 288000 out of normal business hours) instead to request help.


You can choose hazards from four main categories:

  • Flooding
  • Snow and Ice
  • Blocked Gullies (storm or highway drains underneath the road, pavement or walkways)
  • Other.

Selecting "Other" allows you to choose from a further nine categories:

  • Damage to a bridge or wall

In the Comments box please give us as much information about the problem as possible however, please note that any comments you add will be publicly visible on this site. DO NOT INCLUDE any personal data or contact details about yourself at this point.

You can click on the Browse button to upload a picture of the situation being reported. Photos can be uploaded in PNG, JPG or GIF format using a single filename (i.e. has no gaps or breaks).
