The Process

Early Resolution

When an issue is raised the Customer Service Team will try to resolve it at point of contact. If the issue can’t be resolved or if the customer is still unhappy then the Officer will offer to raise a stage 1 complaint.

Stage 1

The complaint will be logged and passed to the relevant Team Manager, who will try to make contact with you to see if the issue can be resolved informally. If you wish to continue with the complaint formally, a full investigation will be carried out by the manager and a response letter will be sent to you within 10 working days of receiving the complaint.

If you are unhappy with the response, you can request a review (stage 2).

Stage 2

The complaint will be reviewed by a Senior Manager and a response letter will be sent within 20 working days of receiving the stage 2 escalation. If you are still unhappy with the response, you will be advised of external investigation options.

Stage 2 Complaint Form

External Review

Once you have been through our process you have the right to take your complaint to the Local Government Ombudsman (LGO) or the Housing Ombudsman Service.
