Emergency out of hours service

Our phone lines and reception opening hours are 8.30am to 4.30pm Monday to Friday, we are closed on bank holidays.

Outside of these times if you have an emergency, such as becoming homeless or you have captured a stray dog call 01256 844844 and stay on the line to be connected with the out-of-hours service, Cymphony.

Text phone and Minicom users can dial 18001 followed by 01256 845276 to contact us via the Relay UK service.

If your call is an emergency and can be dealt with outside of office hours, Cymphony will contact a member of council staff on your behalf.

Calls about council tax, benefits or waste and recycling are not classed as emergencies, if you want to speak to us about any of these subjects please call back when we are open or visit:

For serious issues please report to the Police by calling 101.
