Listening and Learning: Compliments, comments and complaints
Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback. By letting us know what you think - when we are doing a good job or when you think we could do better - you are helping to improve the Council for everybody.
We have a set of standards that outline the service that you can expect from us: our Customer Service Promise.
We aim to provide our customers with good services, but sometimes things go wrong. When this happens, we want you to tell us so that we can put these things right.
If your feedback relates to a complaint, please be aware that some issues and services are covered by a separate process. Please choose the relevant service from the list instead of the general feedback/complaint form:
- Cornwall Housing (including homelessness and housing issues)
- Adult social care complaints
- Children and family care complaints
- Complaints against a Councillor (including town and parish councils)
- Complaints about schools
It may be possible to deal with your enquiry as an informal service request rather than completing a formal complaint investigation. In this case you will be told what action has been taken to resolve the issue.
Common queries which are not complaints
- Appeal a car parking fine
- Appeal a benefits decision
- Appeal a planning decision
- Appeal a Council Tax decision
- Report a missed bin collection
- Report a problem with a road highway or footway
- Make a personal information request
- Make a freedom of information request
If your feedback does not relate to any of the above, the quickest and easiest way to give feedback or make a complaint is to use our online form (or email us if you have documents to attach).
Our Corporate Feedback Policy explains how we deal with complaints. It also covers other types of feedback like comments, suggestions and compliments:
