Complaints

Please let us know when things go wrong. We always try and get things right first time. However, we appreciate that this doesn't always happen.

If you are not satisfied with the service you have received, please let us know in the first instance by contacting the department concerned or by speaking to one of our customer services advisors and we will do our best to put things right. However, if you still remain dissatisfied, then please make a formal complaint.

Each formal complaint received will be recorded on a register which is used to report and monitor the council's performance.

It is important that we learn from our mistakes and therefore the outcomes of some complaints will be used to improve our procedures, performance and service to the public.
