If you would like to make a complaint about our services, please read our Corporate Complaints Policy. This sets out how we handle complaints and deal with them effectively.

A complaint is not an enquiry or request for us to do something. For example, don’t make a complaint to:

  • Report anti-social behaviour.
  • To challenge a decision for which this is a right of appeal, either to a tribunal or to the council itself.
  • Because you disagree with the law.
  • To ask us to provide something, such as information or a service.

You can make a complaint online:

Housing Ombudsman: Complaint Handling Code

How we meet the Complaint Handling Code

The Housing Ombudsman publishes a Complaint Handling Code which helps social landlords, like the council, respond to complaints effectively and fairly.

As part of the Code, we must complete a self-assessment at least once every 12 months. Here is a summary of our latest self-assessment completed in September 2022 and action plan to address any gaps
