The Launceston Registration Office is located in the Launceston Library/One Stop Shop. View the Launceston Registration Office opening hours. Please not: these are different to the Library and Information Service opening hours.

  • We have a car park outside with a disabled badge holder space

Payments for Council services such as Council Tax or Business Rates are taken during opening hours at this location, please have your bill to hand.

For your convenience there are a range of PayPoint and Post Office sites that accept both cash and card payments, with most Post Offices still accepting cheques at no extra cost. Your account will be updated overnight and many PayPoint stores have longer opening hours, often including weekends, offering greater flexibility and choice. Head over to my area to see which facilities are available to you more locally.
