General Complaints

We aim to deliver all our services to the highest possible standard. We want to keep improving and your feedback is a valuable source of information for monitoring our performance, highlighting the areas where you think we can improve as well as recognising the things you think we do well.

Make a general complaint using our online form

We want our services to be excellent, but we know that things can go wrong. Complaints procedures vary depending on the subject.

The list below shows the areas which have their own complaints processes. Please do not use the general complaints form for any of these services. You can find out more by clicking on each one below.

If your complaint is not about one of the above, please use the online form on this page or download a paper copy.

For more information about how we will deal with your complaint please download our procedure leaflet.

Contacting the Local Government Ombudsman

The Local Government Ombudsman (LGO) is an independent, impartial and free service. The Ombudsman may investigate complaints about how the Council has done something.

The Ombudsman will not usually consider your complaint until it has been through our complaints process although there may be exceptions. The LGO will be able to advise you if your case is exceptional.

When we have done all we can to resolve your complaint, if you are still dissatisfied, you can contact the LGO helpline by phoning 0300 061 0614, visit their website or write to them at:
