Town and parish councils

Many local town and parish councils are responsible for services such as grass cutting and hedges, keeping streets clean, emptying litter bins and removing graffiti in public spaces. If you wish to report an issue and are unsure whether your parish council is responsible for the work, report it to us. Where appropriate, we will direct it to the relevant parish council. For general information, visit our town and parish councils information page

Providing feedback

We want to hear your views on the service we've provided to you. You can use our online form to provide comments, suggestions and compliments.

Compliments and comments online form

More information on our customer services feedback page.

Making a complaint

You may be dissatisfied about the standard of a service, actions or lack of actions by the council and its staff. In this case, you may wish to make a complaint to the council. This is different to making a service request about a matter that concerns you, for example a missed bin collection or a noise nuisance. If this is the nature of the contact you with to make with us, you should use the search bar at the top of the page to find the correct area of the site to make your report.

Requesting information from the council

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 gives a general right of access to all types of recorded information held by public authorities. Lots of this information is available via our publication scheme. Where it is not available, however, you can make a Freedom of Information enquiry.
