Feedback on our service
We want to hear from you
At Council we’re committed to providing the most efficient and professional service possible. However, none of us are perfect and we can always take on board feedback and do better.
No matter what the case may be - whether speaking with our Customer Service team, applying for a building consent or interactions with Council staff out in the District - your feedback will help us ensure we are constantly lifting our standards for you and our District.
Alternatively, you can get in touch if you want to say thanks or pay us a compliment.
We’re here to make things as easy as possible for you.
What you can contact us about?
If you’re not happy with your experience with Council please feel free to get in touch with us.
