Council offices open for pre-booked appointments

Our reception is open on an appointment-only basis. This is so that we can keep our customers and staff safe and make sure the council offices are Covid-19 secure.

You will find many of our services are available on this website, so this is a good place to start. If you need to contact us, the best way is still by email or telephone, as our staff may not be working in the office. 

To speak to someone in person, you will need to book an appointment first. You can do this by contacting the team directly to arrange a time.  

Appointments are available between 9am and 3.30pm, Monday to Friday. 

If you are not sure who to speak to, please contact our customer services team by email - or phone - 01252 398 399. 

We will not be able to take payments at the offices, but as well as our make a payment web pages, you can also use our 24-hour payments line, 01252 398 373, or pay through your local Post Office or bank.
