1. A complaint is not these things

A complaint is not:

  • A request for service (such as the removal of “fly-tipping”). Requests for service can be made via our online forms across this website, see the report it page for more information.
  • A request for information or an explanation of council policy (such as why the council tax is set at a certain level).
  • Matters for which there is a right of appeal to an independent tribunal (such as planning applications, benefits decisions).
  • Matters which you can go to court about.          

These issues will not be treated under the complaints procedure.
