Our Complaints Policy can be found here and our Housing Services Complaint Procedure can be found here.

There are two stages to our Complaints Policy:

  • Stage 1 is a thorough investigation by the Customer Satisfaction Manager. Your complaint will be acknowledged within 5 working days and responded to in full within a further 10 working days.
  • Stage 2 is a review by a Senior Manager of the stage 1 decision upon request. Your request will be acknowledged within 5 working day and responded to in full within a further 20 working days.

If more time is needed to resolve the issue at either stage, the deadline can be extended by a further 10 working days.
