Covid-19 Council services

Visiting/contacting the council

Due to the current restrictions, the council offices and reception are closed to visitors but all council services remain operational.

Our telephone contact centre is open on 01252 622122, or for housing benefit, call 01825 827163, and for Council Tax, 01825 827162. Alternatively, many of our services are available online via our website, including housing benefits and Council Tax information. Required documentation can be uploaded on the website, sent via email or posted.

From 12 April the Council has re-opened its reception in line with Step 2 of the government’s roadmap. This is for urgent issues only, such as homelessness or for people seeking advice on benefits. Please adhere to social distancing rules and use the hand sanitiser when entering the building.
