Online Report Forms

Some issues can also be reported online via the Council website. The forms are difficult to find on the new Council website, so we have provided direct links below:

Report problems with grass cutting, overgrown hedges, shrub beds etc >>

Report problems with play areas >>

Reporting graffiti, fly tipping and drug & sex litter:

At the moment these have to be reported via forms designed for reporting issues on streets, so you need to give the street where the park entrance is and give a good description of the location.

Report Graffiti >>

Report fly-tipping >>

Drugs & sex litter: Report by phone to Bristol Parks 0117 922 3719. Urgent out of hours calls – Emergency Control Centre on 0117 922 2050

Other Contacts

If you witness anti social behaviour in a park or green space in Bristol, please report it to either the Council via 0117 922 2500 or the non-emergency police line on 101. Whilst a police response will not always be possible, these calls will help build up a picture of hotspots and issues in your area and are extremely valuable in helping reduce antisocial behaviour. More information on the Council’s website.

You can also contact your local councillors and discuss local problems with them, many councillors attend meetings of local park groups.
