Make It Easy - Customer Resolution Centre

We place customers at the heart of everything we do. Our vision is to improve lives and create opportunity and putting the customer first is how we are making this happen. As part of this, we are being open about the demand we experience in customer services. Now, our customers can see our peak periods and make the most of our services.

Customer satisfaction

We aim to achieve high levels of customer satisfaction across all of our service areas. The following is updated daily and shows the results of our satisfaction surveys, as well as providing a little more information to explain why - if residents did not get everything they needed in their call - why this was.
