You Said, We Did

The changes we made to the website and services in response to your comments.

We use a rating system to collect satisfaction information. You can leave feedback - Good, Average or Poor - when you visit our main office, when you contact us by phone or when you visit the website. This feedback helps us find what is working, what is not working and helps us to make improvements.

Some changes can be made almost immediately, but others may take a little more time. Below are some things we have changed.

If you would like to make any comments or suggestions about the services on the website please Contact Us

ServiceYou Said...What we did...
I was trying to find directions to the New Teignmouth cemetery, but could not find the postcode for the sat nav or directions anywhere.
We added Google maps to each of the cemetery pages, people can now get directions even though cemeteries do not have postcodes.
Leisure & Green SpacesI thought I'd find a list of all parks somewhere on your web site!list of all parks, with maps, can now be found at www.teignbridge.gov.uk/parks
Leisure & Green Spaces
