Dealing with complaints is a core part of Council business and we encourage people to contact us when they have a problem with our services, actions, decisions, and policies.

A complaint includes a communication (verbal or written) to the Council which expresses dissatisfaction about:

  • The quality of an action, decision or service provided by Council staff or a Council contractor.
  • A delay by Council staff or a Council contractor in taking an action, making a decision, or delivering a service.
  • A policy or decision made by the Council, Council staff or a Council contractor.
We are committed to:
  • Building a positive culture around complaints and good complaint handling practices and systems.
  • Enabling members of the public to make complaints about the Council.
  • Responding to complaints by taking action to resolve complaints as quickly as possible.
  • Learning from complaints to improve our services and taking steps to ensure the matters do not recur.
  • Engaging better with the community.

We treat every complaint we receive on its individual merits, through clear and consistent processes.

We systematically record, analyse and report on complaint data and outcomes to improve our systems and service delivery.
