Comments and complaints

We aim to give all our customers a good service, but sometimes we make mistakes. If you're unhappy with something we've done, please let us know.

More info about the journey

You will need to provide us with your name, contact details and information about your comment or complaint.


Your comments or complaint will be passed to the relevant department manager as quickly as possible. They are responsible for taking the appropriate action. If you are making a complaint, we will keep your identity confidential where possible. If you are not satisfied with our services, please say what went wrong and what you think we should do about it. We will try to sort out any problems quickly. If we can't deal with them straight away, we will let you know what is going on including reasons for any delay. You can expect to receive a full reply within 20 working days.

If you then tell us you are not satisfied with the outcome

We will refer your complaint to the member of the Corporate Leadership Team responsible for the service involved. They will give the matter further consideration and make a final decision.

If, following investigation by the Team, you are still not satisfied, you have the right to complain to the Local Government Ombudsman.

As part of our complaints procedure you will be asked to complete an equalities monitoring form. We hope you will choose to complete and return the form as this information will help us to establish whether there has been any unfair discrimination in the way we deliver our services to you.
