Keeping in touch

If you have a mobile phone or SMS enabled home phone and use it to contact the council then you may see some changes to the way we contact you.

In the coming months we will be introducing a texting/SMS service that we may use to contact you to let you know about your rent or service charge account, confirm appointments with you, or carry out simple surveys.

This is designed to help to keep you informed in a convenient way, and will help us deliver services more efficiently.
