Due to essential maintenance, the following systems will be unavailable from 6.00pm on Monday 2 October until 8.00am on Tuesday 3 October: our online council tax, business rates and housing benefit services, and our welfare assistance form. You will also not be able to register to pay council tax online, make a change of address for council tax or cancel single person discount. You are still able to make a payment during this time. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Needles, syringes and drugs equipment

If you come across a discarded syringe or needle please report the location to us.

 Please do not attempt to pick up syringes or needles yourself.

To protect against accidental needle injury,  we will attempt to remove them within 2 hours of receiving your message. The discarded syringe will be collected in a safe storage box before being disposed of with other clinical waste.
