Feedback on Our Service
We want to hear from you
At Council we are committed to providing the most efficient and professional service possible. We would love to hear of any positive, or not-so positive feedback you may have about the service we provide.
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.
We’re here to make things as easy as possible for you.
What you can contact us about?
If you have received excellent customer service and have had a great experience with our Council, please feel free to get in touch with us.
On the other hand, if you have had an experience that is not so positive, please contact us and let us know. This ensures we are accountable and do what we can to remedy the issue. This can include a Council process or the interaction you had with our Western Bay of Plenty District Council staff.
