Complaints Procedure

It is hoped that all of the services that the Council provides will be undertaken in a manner that meets with residents satisfaction. If any resident has any concerns or suggestions it is probably best that they contact a Councillor or the Parish Clerk to make an informal suggestion or discuss the issue. Residents can also come to a Parish Council meeting, the dates and locations of which are published on our web site and can address the Council during the "public session". It is all very informal and Councillors welcome comments from the public.

However, for more serious issues, a member of the public might wish to make a formal complaint. This Policy explains how you should do that and how your complaint will be handled.
